Windows Server 2003 SP1 Issues (3.0.15pre2)

Hi All,

I'm running into some issues accessing a Samba server that's in turn 
authenticating against a Win2k3-SP1 domain controller (security=ads).  I 
understand there were some known issues corrected in a patch, and I'm 
currently running 3.0.15pre2, which I understand includes that patch.


All was working fine before the Win2k3 server was upgraded with the SP1 
service pack.  The `net ads join`, `wbinfo -t`, `wbinfo -u`, `wbinfo -p`, 
`getent passwd`, and `getent group` commands all still work fine, but 
users can't authenticate against the Samba box and view available shares.

For example, here's a local smbclient connection from the local console 
(although other Windows XP clients fail to authenticate to view available 
shares, which worked fine before and is really what we're trying to do):

   [root at linux-test samba]# smbclient -L -U polorx
   added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
   Client started (version 3.0.15pre2).
   Connecting to at port 445
   Doing spnego session setup (blob length=112)
   got OID=1 2 840 113554 1 2 2
   got OID=1 2 840 48018 1 2 2
   got OID=1 3 6 1 4 1 311 2 2 10
   got principal=linux-test$@TCB.INTERNAL
   Got challenge flags:
   Got NTLMSSP neg_flags=0x60890215
   NTLMSSP: Set final flags:
   Got NTLMSSP neg_flags=0x60080215
   NTLMSSP Sign/Seal - Initialising with flags:
   Got NTLMSSP neg_flags=0x60080215
   SPNEGO login failed: Logon failure
   session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
   [root at linux-test samba]#

I have attached the Samba server's configuration file, and I can also 
provide detailed logs upon request.  Does anyone have any ideas on this?

Thanks, in advance, for any insights you can offer!
