I've upgraded a Linux box from Debian 2.0 to Debian 2.2 (potato),
before the upgrade I had Samba 1.9.18 which worked without
Upgrading to Samba 2.0.6 (debian version), now every connection fails
with this error:
[2000/01/31 12:07:36, 0] lib/util_sec.c:assert_gid(72)
Failed to set gid privileges to (-1,65534) now set to (0,0) uid=(0,0)
[2000/01/31 12:07:36, 0] lib/util.c:smb_panic(2456)
PANIC: failed to set gid
The System is a PII 300 Mhz, Kernel 2.0.34, libc6 2.1.2.
I've verifyed my /etc/passwd and /etc/group and I didn't found any
errors, so now I've no other clue for addressing the problem.
BTW, I'm using "encrypt passwords = no", so the /etc/samba/smbpasswd
file should'n be an issue.
If you need I can post the output of 'testparm'.
