Hello, everyone. I'm trying to make Samba 2.2.2 a PDC
for Win2000 clients. 

I believe that I have set the Linux Samba machine up
correctly. For your review, these are the steps that I
have taken:

* compile Samba 2.2.2 from source, no extra options.
* make; make install. (to /usr/local/samba)
* groupadd machines (for my machine trust accounts)
* groupadd smbadm (samba domain admin group)
* useradd -d /dev/null -s /bin/false -g machines TEST$
* smbpasswd -m -a TEST
* useradd -d /home/gellis -s /bin/bash -g smbadm
* smbpasswd -a root
* smbpasswd -e root
* smbpasswd -a gellis
* smbpasswd -e gellis

* On W2k client, try to join domain SAMBA with
username root and root's smbpasswd. I receive this

"There is no user session key for the specified logon

I cannot find any answers, and I've been trying this
for days. If anyone can help that would be greatly

I have included my .conf file as well:

        domain logons=yes
        netbios name=pdc

        domain master=yes
        local master=yes
        preferred master=yes
        os level=65

        wins support=yes

        encrypt passwords=yes
        null passwords=yes

        logon drive = H:
        logon home = \\PDC\%u
        logon path = \\%N\profiles\%u

        log file=/usr/local/samba/var/%m.log
        log level=2
        write list=ntadmin

        writeable = yes
        create mask = 0600
        directory mask = 0700

Any help is greatly appreciated,
Garrett Ellis
