sorry original posting was to both samba and samba-technical, but I sent by debug to samba not technical

thanks Andy

Second attempt, didn't accept my zip file first time....

Hi Jeremy/All,

	I've attached two gzips with both a good authentication (Kinit obtained using the same case as account is
stored in AD) and also a bad authentication (Where I've obtained a ticket for a username in all lower case
where the account is stored with mixed case in AD).

		thanks Andy.

PS the account is stored in /etc/passwd in the same case as AD, ie in my problem it is mixed case in
both locations.

Can you send in a debug level 10 log so we can try and determine where
the problem is ?
