for me it looks not like a configuration problem.
After a new reinstallation of samba i found the message

      smb_pam_passcheck: PAM: smb_pam_auth failed - Rejecting User root !

in log.smbd

Any more ideas?

Regards, Rudi

I believe that all samba users must be in the smbpasswd file unless
you're using winbind, ldap or some other backend.

maybe you had a user mapping between root and some other user before...
