Hi all,

i have some trouble with my Samba PDC and XP. The XP-Box joins the
samba-domain without problems. The machine trust accounts also appear in
passwd-file correctly.
The problem is that i can't log in to the xp-box (domain) after i joined
the domain. The error message tells me that xp can't find the domain
controller or the user account. I am trying to log in with the same
account as i used to join the domain (root).
If i watch the incoming traffic on the samba-box i can't see any traffic
from the xp box when i try to log in. So xp doesn't even try to verify
the password. Wired...

-I have applied the "SignOrSeal"-patch.
-my hostname is the same as the netbios name

Here is my smb.conf:

        workgroup = domain
        netbios name = SERVER
        interfaces =
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -s /bin/false %u
        domain logons = Yes
        preferred master = True
        domain master = True
        wins support = Yes
        comment = server
        admin users = root

        path = /home/netlogon
        write list = root

        comment = Heimatverzeichnis
        read only = No
        browseable = No

        path = /home/profile
        read only = No
        guest ok = Yes
        browseable = No

Thanks in advance for your help!
