Dear Team,


            When I tried to join my Linux samba 3.0.14a to windows 2003
server, where NetBIOS over TCP/IP option is disabled and NTLMV2 is
enabled. Linux domain join is failing to the server and an error
"Unable to find a suitable server" is displayed. (NetBIOS over TCP/IP
disable = Listen only port 445) when I analyzed the issue with the help
of network captures I observed that Linux Samba is sending request to
port 137 which is NMBD.


But AD join is happening with the same setup, please let me know whether
fix is available in the latest version of samba for this setup or it is
limitation from samba?


Thanks in advance,
