I am running Samba 2.2.1 on a Redhat 7.2 machine and have the following
workgroup = AGS_NT
security = domain
password server = mocha bigblue
encrypt passwords = yes
everything else is default. "mocha" is the PDC and is a NT4 box".
The machine has joined the domain with "smbpasswd -j AGS_NT".
When using "smbpasswd -f mocha" is fails:
$ smbpasswd -D 3 -r mocha
Unknown parameter encountered: "ssl CA certFile"
Ignoring unknown parameter "ssl CA certFile"
added interface ip=220.127.116.11 bcast=18.104.22.168 nmask=255.255.255.0
not adding duplicate interface 22.214.171.124

Connecting to 126.96.36.199 at port 139
machine mocha rejected the password change: Error was : User has insufficient privilege.
Failed to change password for johnr
The password is correct and the accounts on NT are set up to allow
On the NT machine in the Event Security Log an event with an icon
of a little padlock appears with the USER field of ANONYMOUS!
I have straced the system calls and I can see the string "johnr"
inside a packet being sent to "mocha".
This used to work some time ago. It also happens on a machine
I have searched for this problem and discovered it has been reported
in a few mailing lists and newsgroups but there's never a reply :(
Please help, I'm really stuck.
