I can't get a Win2k computer to execute a login script. Also, on both the XP
computer and the w2k computer I get this message in their log file

[2002/07/24 13:27:17, 0] rpc_server/srv_netlog_nt.c:get_md4pw(188)
  get_md4pw: Workstation sales1$: no account in domain

sales1 is the XP computer, but I get the exact same error for win2k.  Both
computers (appear) to log on to the domain (as in, I get no errors).  The XP
computer does run the logon script, the win2k does not.

I have about 10 Win98 computers on my network (all of which work fine). 1
Win2k and 1 XP Pro computer. I just recently moved to Samba 2.2.5 configured
with --enable-cups and
--with-ldapsam I am running OpenLDAP on the same host.

Here is my snippet of smb.conf
    ldap admin dn = "cn=Manager, dc=lifesafety, dc=net"
    ldap server = lifesaver.lifesafety.net
    ldap ssl = off
    ldap port = 389
    ldap suffix = "ou=People, dc=lifesafety, dc=net"

here is the output of ldapsearch uid=scott$ (win2k computer)

dn: uid=scott$,ou=People, dc=lifesafety, dc=net

uid: SCOTT$
logoffTime: 2147483647
kickoffTime: 2147483647

# search result

here is its entry in /etc/passwd

Note, I did notice that uid: SCOTT$ is capitalized.  For some reason when I
did the "join Domain" in win2k setup it rewrote the ldap file, and made it
capitalized.  I have modified the LDAP database to show scott$ but then I
couldn't even log into the domain.

Any help on this would be great!

Thank you so much!
