I am currently using 2.0.7 on a Solaris 8 box, using password authentication
via a W2K Domain Controller. Compiled up the new version (without winbind)
and installed into a new directory. Used smbpasswd to join the machine to
the domain, which was successful and started samba. Whenever I try to
connect to a share on the solaris box, I get the following error in the
samba log file:

connect_to_domain_password_server: unable to setup the PDC credentials to

If I edit the smb.conf file and set "encrypt passwords" to No, it works OK.

Here is the smb.conf file for info

        workgroup = DOMAIN1
        netbios name = SERVER1
        security = DOMAIN
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        password server = domctrl1
        log file = /var/samba/logs/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        printcap name = /opt/samba/sambaprintcap
        os level = 0
        comment = Samba Server on server1
        oplocks = No
        utmp = Yes

        comment = Product top level share using links
        path = /export/samba-2.0.7
        write list = user1
        create mask = 0774
        directory mask = 0775
        force directory mode = 0775
        guest ok = Yes

Reverting back to the 2.0.7 version works perfectly. Any hints or
suggestions gratefully received.
