Samba Users:

	I am having a problem authenticating against my Active Directory
domain from my Samba Box.  I have setup an HP box that has two shares /home
and /tmp.  I have joined the HP box to the AD domain using the "net ads
join" command and did not receive any errors doing this.  I am not running
PAMS or Winbind, but just want to authenticate users mapping a drive to my
HP shares using their Active Directory accounts.  LDAP and KERBEROS are
running on the HP box.

	However, I receive the following error in the log when trying to map
a drive to the HP box:

[2003/08/07 07:47:36, 0] lib/smbldap.c:(253)
  fetch_ldap_pw: neither ldap secret retrieved!

	Can anyone help me determine where my problem exists?
