So all the non NT users have ###NOPASSWORD### in smbpasswd?
This sounds strange to me so let me just ask again to make
sure I understand what you ar saying.
- You created the smbpasswd file with
'cat /etc/passwd | makesmbpasswd.sh > smbpasswd' or something
- The NT users set their LanMan and NT hashes using smbpasswd on
the linux box.
- The WfWg users did nothing.
So just for fun, what happens when you do something like
net use x: \\server\share /user:<WfWg username>
from and NT box?
