Yes. I've used two methods for this.
1) Bypass the issue by letting an NT4 server, SP3 or higher, act as a
domain or password server. The registry must be modified to allow
plain text passwords.
2) Use NetBIOS aliases and include files. Set your server
to advertise itself as two different server names
In the [global] section your smb.conf file add lines something like:
netbios name = samba_encrypted
netbios aliases = samba_unencrypted
include = /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf.%L
You then need an include file for each netbios name. In
this case /usr/local/lib/smb.conf.samba_encrypted and
The include file for encrypted connections should contain:
encrypt passwords = Yes
smb passwd file = /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd
The include file for unencrypted connections should contain:
encrypt passwords = No
