Hi All

OK, I've followed the instructions to the letter.  I cannot get winbindd to
work.  Here is the output from winbindd -i -d 5

could not find any domain controllers for domain SBSFOR

OK, so this is what I've tried so far.  I've put my PDC in the LMHOSTS file
on the samba server.  I've made the samba server a wins server.  These all
work, I get a positive name query for each.  Joining the domain works fine.
However, I cannot set 'password = *' in my smb.conf file, I have to
explicitly tell samba which server is the password server.  I cannot connect
to samba shares otherwise.  wbinfo -t says ...  "Could not check secret"
wbinfo -u say "Error looking up domain users"

So, if I read this right, winbind is finding my PDC through name resolution,
bind in this case, but when it tries to check it, it get's no response.
Assuming that I've set winbind up properly, would this indicate a fault in
my NT box.  All my M$ clients see the box as the PDC.  The only thing that
might be weird with the PDC is taht it was promoted from a BDC when I
upgraded our network and got rid of our old PDC.  I'd really like to get
this to work, it sounds like a great idea from the samba people.  Please
excuse the cross post of this to samba and samba domain.  If any more info
is needed by all the gurus, don't hesitate to ask.
