I'm running samba 2.2.3a on a Solaris 8 machine. I've set encrypted
passwords to YES, security=DOMAIN. When I try to connect from my PC, I get
the following in the samba logfile

connect_to_domain_password_server: unable to setup the PDC credentials to
ine BFSDC1. Error was : NT_STATUS_OK.
[2002/02/28 14:25:13, 0] smbd/password.c:(1554)
  domain_client_validate: Domain password server not available.

If I set the security parameter to SERVER, and leave the password server
parameter the same, I can see the shares. I noticed the following in the
security section of the man page for smb.conf

BUG: There is currently a bug in the implementation of security = domain
with respect to multi-byte character set usernames. The communication with a
Domain Controller must be done in UNICODE and Samba currently does not widen
multi-byte user names to UNICODE correctly, thus a multi-byte username will
not be recognized correctly at the Domain Controller. This issue will be
addressed in a future release.

Does anyone know if this issue has been addressed as yet?
