I can't make it work although both sign&seal and restrictanonymous are set to 

My setup is: w2k sp2 as PDC, w2k sp3 as client, samba 3.0a21 joined into the 
PDC domain as an ADS member.  The scenario is, from the w2k sp3 client, 
connect to a share hosted by samba, create a file, then use 
property->security->add tab to add an ACE, then the browsing user/group 
windows appears and only the samba box itself appears (and greyed out), no 
domain info is available.  Using a w2k sp2 client works just fine.

Last Friday's HEAD code won't let the sp3 client to connect.  Today's HEAD 
code got this error and winbindd dies.
[2003/04/28 14:54:07, 0] sam/idmap_tdb.c:db_idmap_init(280)
  idmap_init: Unable to open idmap database
[2003/04/28 14:54:07, 0] sam/idmap.c:idmap_init(70)
  idmap_init: could not load or create local backend!

I will try older HEAD code in the mean time.

I would like to know if anybody had success of using w2k sp3 or win 2003, as 
PDC or client.  Any hints of how to make this work?

Thanks in advance!
