| Morning
| I re-installed samba 2.2.6 and applied service pack 3 on win2K. same

Doens't seem like it ...

| when I try and login with any use
| the credentials supplied conflict with an existing set of credentials

That's a windows error. Windows it telling you it can't connect to the
same server as multiple users. You have probably browsed the machine as
an anonymous user already. Log out of windows, log back in, and try and
connect to the machine as the first thing you do.

If you want to avoid this problem, make sure that your windows username
and password match the username and password on the samba server.

| what else can I do.
|   what would be the steps to follow for a new install. rpm  from the
| mandrake 9.0 distribution?

Remove the old RPM:
# urpme samba-common

Move the old configuration files, since rpm won't overwrite them, and
that's actually what you want:

# mv /etc/samba /etc/samba.old

Install samba

# urpmi samba-server

Edit your smb.conf to change the workgroup:

# kate /etc/samba/smb.conf
(or use the editor of your choice, I use vi, which syntax highlights
smb.conf if you have vim-enhanced installed, but kate should also if you
have KDE on the machine)

Restart samba for good measure

# service smb restart

Add smbpasswd's for the users:

# smbpasswd -a <username>

Connect, and it should all work.

BTW, you have a different subject line to your previous mail, I may be
on the wrong thread, in which case you should *really* take a look at
the original smb.conf with a text editor, and everything should be clearer.

Also, http://ranger.dnsalias.com/mandrake/muo/connect/csamba6.html may
be useful if the subject of this mail is correct.
