Hi Lester,

Yes I did, I added my win2k user account name to smbpasswd and passwd.
I did  not change anything I just went to work and came back last night and 
tried it again. Now I get the following message:
'The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "bla-bla":
The account used is a computer account. Use your global account or local user account to access this server'

I did check that the everything is lower case and no spelling mistakes. Now the creditials I use account on Win2k
that I always use to logon (this account is a copy on the local admin account), it is also the account that I added to smdpasswd and passwd.
I double checked that the passwords on both pc (my and server) are the same.

I also tried to use the root account from my pc to join the domain but then this is the error message that I get:
'The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "bla-bla":
Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password'

Now I known the credintials are correct because I use it via Putty to logon with SSH.
I tried a search on google on these errors, all the results I got back were people that have the same problem but 
have not found any solutions to them yet.

Any Ideas, suggestions, suggested readings?

  Did you add the username and password for SMB.


  Smbpasswd -a username.  You have to have the same password in smbpasswd as you do in your windows box

  Hi there,

  I have managed to get Samba installed and running etc...

  I have setup the directories etc for profiles etc... I managed to get samba to 

  appear on the network and I can access it via name and IP address, BUT

  when I try to add my Win2k PC to the domain it gives the following msg:


  The following error occurred attempting to join domain "bla-bla":

  The credentials supplied conflict with an existing set of credentials.


  What the heck does this mean ? that I allready have a connection open the

  the samba server or that it is not happy with user + passwd ?
