DCE DFS Samba...

At last! Someone who knows what I'm talking about! Thanks for the
response. Let's start with what I'm running...
I'm running in a mixed environment, DFS is on a Sun SparcServer 2000
(5.5.1) , and CDS/SEC is on Digital Unix. We have HP, SUN, and Cray
Samba is compiled on the DFS server.
Anyway, I notice that I get no debug messages in the logs from dfs_auth, I
specifically looked through the code, and then my logs.
It's almost like they're not called. I also get 'become_user: already
user' alot, even thought smbd is still running as root. As such, I can see
/.../cellname/fs, but have no permissions to it (root get's the 'self'
creds for the host).
I have 'log level = 4' in smb.conf, and still get no DCE debug messages.
What fixes did you have to make? Could I have a look?
