I've been trying for a couple of weeks now to get Samba to authenticate via Winbind to an NT domain. I've scoured Google and the mailing lists to no avail. I've tried various configurations that I've found during my searches, but none of them have worked for me.
I need to be able to authenticate users, that do not have an account on the Linux box, against the NT domain, and automatically create a home directory for them. This is the purpose of Winbind (except the home directory part, which pam_mkhomedir is supposed to do), as I understand it. Something between winbind and pam is failing since the connecting user gets authenticated as guest rather than an actual user.
My current configuration is RedHat 7.3 and Samba 2.2.5. My most current samba installation is an RPM generated via the makerpms.sh script in the packaging/RedHat folder of the 2.2.5 samba distribution.
I've added the following compilation flags in the samba2.spec file: This is my latest attempt, since nothing else seemed to work.
'getent passwd' and 'getent group' work properly so I think winbind works, too. I think the problem lies somewhere with pam, but I'm not a pam guru by any stretch of the imagination.
The problem is one I've seen discussed a couple of times, but have not seen any kind of resolution. The next few lines are from the log file of the client attempting to connect to the server with an account called ilchtest.

The following is the last line of what 'winbindd -d5 -i' spits out when I start it from the root prompt:
tdb(unknown): tdb_brlock failed (fd=10) at offset 4 rw_type=1 lck_type=13 <--------Not sure if this points to a problem???
The following is what 'winbindd -d5 -i' spits out when the client trys to connect:
