I have installed Samba 2.0.3 on an Hp 10.20 File server.

I can happlly mount from my NT box using AccountA , but not AccountB.
The difference is that AccountB has a passwd length of nine chars. When
I change it to eight it works.

I switched on debug and have masses of output if anyones interested.

Is this  8 char limit configurable anywhere ?

Thanks for any help.
