I have a similar problem to Giulio Orsero.
I have failure messages in the log files, but I actually have samba mapping

I have 2.0.6-PDC and a 2.0.6-domain-member of the 1st pdc.

Couldn't find user 'go' in smb_passwd file.
[1999/11/16 17:25:06, 1] smbd/service.c:make_connection(535)
go (10.0.0.173) connect to service go as user go (uid=105, gid=100)
I don't understand why it logs that it can't find "go" in smbpasswd
since the primary auth source is the pdc which gives ok to my
userid/password pair. It shouldn't look at the smbpasswd file at all if
the pdc is there, should it?
I mean: all is ok, but the log says something that could be interpreted
