Subject: [Samba] Problem with smbclient and domain logon

I am able to join the domain initially with root username and password.
When i reboot and try to logon to the domain it tells me:
The system could not log you on because the domain DARCSTAR is unavailable.
Additionally, i am having a problem with logging in from smbclient with any
user except for root:
I type: smbclient -L FILESERVER -U sean
session_setup_failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
Are these 2 problems related in anyway? I've been messing with this for over
a week now and I cannot figure it out.
also, in win2k when i open the run window and type : \\FILESERVER\
it opens a username/password box, if i put in sean and the password it pops
the box right up again. In the samba.log file it says something to the
effect of:
Couldn't find user 'sean' in passdb
i double checked and sean$ does exist in /etc/samba/smb.conf
I am not at the server right now so I do not have exact errors messages. If
necessary I can post my smb.conf later today.
thank you.
