I am new to Linux but not networking and computers but I have been trying t
make a red hat 7.3 box join and NT domain.  I can add the pc on NT under
server manager but when I run the command on the Linux box it fails.

well i have been trying to get my linux box to join my nt domain (not as a
PDC just as a client) and it just wont join dang naggit!  run "smbpasswd -j
<mydomain> -r <PDC netbios name> like it says to do in the book it gives me
the following error: 
cli_net_auth2:Error NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED cli_nt_setup_creds : auth2
challenge failed modify_trust_password:unable to setup the PDC credentials
to machince <myPDC>
 Error was : NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED 2001/01/25 20:28:46 :
change_trust_account_password : failed to change password for domain
<mydomain> unable to join domain <mydomain> 
I can not access the share because it requests a username and password.  If
I reconfigure my smb.conf  to use security = share or server I can make it

Testparm shows no errors.  I have found lots of people who are having the
same problem but no one has posted how to correct the issue.  Please advise
this is getting down right frustrating.
