Hello all,

I am having trouble adding a windows 2000 client to a Redhat 8.0 Server
running Samba 2.2.7 Domain

Samba is the only PDC on the Network

everytime I try to add the windows 2000 computer to the Domain using the
root user, I get the error " The following error occured

attempting to join the domain "nextechvt" The Specified user dooes not

I know the root user was added because I used the command smbpasswd -a root

I am able to access the samba server through this method

My Network Places

entire network

entire contents

Microsoft Windows Network


then I can connect as root using the correct password
I find it weird because when ever I try to connect the client to the 
domain it states that the user does not exist.

Help Help
