[Samba] Winbind - Why won't you authenticate???

Hi Daniel,
that should work - but I notice that you are using "\" for the winbindd
separator - some unix'es will swallow this character as an 'escape'
character;  for instance on HPUX  you can see:

# ./wbinfo -a atl-wtec\atlwtec1%atlwtec1
Could not authenticate user atl-wtecatlwtec1%atlwtec1 with plaintext
Could not authenticate user atl-wtecatlwtec1%atlwtec1 with

NOTE in the above that the response does NOT display the "\" inbetween the
and the username.

Is this happening to you?

Well, I managed to get Samba 2.2.3 up and running on our Solaris 8 machine.
I installed with the winbind option and everything went though just find.  
I was able to join the NT domain and now I can do a wbinfo -u  "and get a
domain user list as well as a "wbinfo -g and get a group list.  For some
reason though, the authentication isn't working.

I tried to "wbinfo -a" and used a number of possible names.  The samba
server is on an NT domain called "jwad" and it has a trust relationship with
"jhuapl".  My user account is on jhuapl, and I want to get authenticated.
When I try the wbinfo -a jhuapl\thomadj1%PASSWORD it returns fail signals on
both clear text and challange/reponse methods.  From what I see though, it
doesn't even appear to be trying to talk to the domain controller, because
the Reponses are given way to quick for any real network activity to have
taken place.

Please lend some advice if you have any.  I can probably get sample output
if needed.
