Have there been any problems reported with running 2.0.2 on servers using
security=server with a 1.9.18p10 DMB? We've run into a situation where
I've upgraded 4 of our servers to 2.0.2 but the DMB is still running
1.9.18p10. We have had sporatic trouble with the upgraded servers
rejecting correct passwords because the DMB seemingly would not properly
validate them. Today, we ran into a more serious problem where Win95 samba
drives were being disconnected when accessed because "password server
URANUS rejected the password". I'm wondering if there were changes made to
the password validation code which would bring about this behavior.

Any and all info would be greatly appreciated. I want to upgrade our
remaining servers including the DMB to 2.0.2, but I'm worried about this
problem continuing even if I upgrade the DMB.

Thanks in advance.
