Hi people,

I have this problem over this. I have a server that resides in asiapacfic domain. This server serves users from oceania and asiapacific region. I am using the oceania domain to authenticate. But only users from oceania domain can connect. It isnt working for asiapacific users. I have the same configuration in another machine. But it is working. I have created a computer object in the oceania domain. Please kindly assist

        workgroup = OCEANIA
        netbios name = NEWSERVER1
        server string = Samba server
        security = server
        map to guest = Bad User
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        password server = oceaniadc1 oceaniadc2 asiapacificdc1 asiapacificdc2
        password level = 8
        username level = 8
        max log size = 1024
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        dns proxy = No
        wins server = winserver1 winserver2 winserver3
        dead time = 2
        interfaces =
        bind interfaces only = yes

        # set local master to no if you don't want Samba to become a master
        # browser on your network. Otherwise the normal election rules apply
        domain master = no
        local master = no
        preferred master = no
        os level = 0
#        log level = 10
        log file = /var/samba/log/smbd.log

Error in the logs
