You were right on the money there. Didn't know about that. So I recreated
the pw file, in the appropriate directory, and the correct entries are in
there. Additionally, I have verified that all the UID's match those in
I tried clearing out the logs, and then trying exactly one login. What I
got was the following repeated exactly 30 times:
[2000/11/06 08:36:05, 0] passdb/smbpass.c:(179)
getsmbfilepwent: uids in the smbpasswd file must not be negative.
[2000/11/06 08:36:05, 1] smbd/password.c:(511)
Account for user 'dking' was disabled.
Upon checking, the UID for nobody is -2 in /etc/passwd Is this normal?
Can I change this to any positive integer and not affect other system
things? Any signigicance to the number 30?
Basically, any test from the troubleshooting list that requires a password
("smbclient -L myserver", "smbclient '\\myserver\tmp") doesn't work, but all
the others do ("nmblookup -B myserver __SAMBA__ ,"nmblookup -B myclient
'*'", "nmblookup -d 2'*'")
Thanks again. You've been a great help.
