I know that you must have defined the user on the local server even when
you refer to a password server. I have done this with a valid password and
I even can make a valid connection, but I receive this error. Maybe it's
I use 'encrypt passwords = no', I don't know (it's the first time I see
this error).

User werner: account on local server1 (only in /etc/passwd)
             account on password server2 (only in /etc/passwd).

Since I've set 'encrypt passwords = no', I do not need /etc/smbpasswd.

Any ideas?
