Hi there!

I have recently upgraded our HP-UX 10.2 server from Samba 1.9.18p1 to
2.2.1a. The upgrade went OK but when I try to map a share, it will not do
what I want. I have been through all the tests in "Diagnosing your Samba
Server", and some of them failed.

TEST 8 failed. When I typed "net view \\server" in the MS-DOS window I got
this message: "System error 5 has occured. Access is denied."

TEST 9 failed. Using the Run command on "net use x: \\server\tmp", It said:
"The password is invalid for \\server\tmp, type the password for
\\server\tmp:" When I wrote it, nothing happened.

TEST 11 failed. I tried to dobble click on the server in the browse list.
Then I got the following message: "Incorrect password or unknown username
for \\server. Connect as:_____________ Password:____________." When
username and password was written the following message came: "\\server is
not accessible. The account is not authorized to login from this station.

I am using a Win NT 4.0 workstation doing my tests. With the
EnablePlainTextPassword enabled in the registry, I am able to get on to the
server, but I hoped not to use this one after upgrading. I know it shall
work without it, so there might be some settings in the [global] part of my
smb.conf file I have to change.

Here is my smb.conf configuration:

   getwd cache = yes
   read raw = yes
   workgroup = icbergen
   server string = Samba Server %v
   security = server
   password server = Windows_NT_Machine
   local master = no
   hosts allow =
   printing = sysv
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   load printers = yes

   comment = Home Directory
   browseable = no
   read only = no
   create mode = 0700

   comment = Public Directory
   path = /usr/public
   public = no
   writable = yes
   force create mode = 0755
   force directory mode = 0755

   comment = Office Directory
   path = /usr/office
   public = no
   writable = yes
   force create mode = 0775
   force directory mode = 0775

   comment = Felles Directory
   path = /home/felles
   public = no
   writable = yes
   force create mode = 0777
   force directory mode = 0777

   comment = Tilgjengelige printere
   path = /tmp
   browsable = no
   printable = yes
   public = no
   writable = no
   create mode = 0700

   comment = Temporary Files
   path = /tmp
   read only = yes

Hopefully some of you are familiar with my problem, in advance THANK'S!!!!
