for each user,
first i gave them a linux account by doing:
passwd sean$ (changed the password)
smbpasswd -m -a sean
it then said it added the user sean$
then i did smbpasswd sean
changed the SMB password for user sean$
smbpasswd -e sean$
and it says it enabled the user, but still i get the error
I check /etc/samba/smbpasswd and the user sean$ is in that file....
do i also have to put the user into smbusers manually?
right now it only has:
admin = root
nobody = guest
not sure if i have to add anything to that?

did you add them to the smbpasswd and is samba's password encryption set to yes?

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
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.
