I"ve heard of this a few times, but I'm not sure of the fix.  It has
something to do with it using a generic account to make the connection.  I'm
not sure of the details though.  You might try posting your smb.conf and
looking through all of your log files and posting anything that looks

Subject: [Samba] Win2k accounts get locked


I'm currently running samba 2.2.2 on a solaris 8 sparc box running
maintenance update 7

I have set the following in smb.conf
Security = domain
encrypt password = yes

The password server is a win2k Domain Controller running sp2 in native

For the most part, everything is running just ducky. However, we have one
small problem. Some users get locked out from time to time when they
access the samba box via UNC(eg: \\samba\home\username). There NT account
gets locked.

Is there a work arround for this? Is this fixed under samba 2.2.3a?
