Thanks to the list for all the suggestions.
Finally, someone here suggested that the PDC had been upgraded to Win
2003, whereas the BDC was still Win 2000, so perhaps I should try
pointing directly at the BDC with my "smbpasswd -j".
It worked immediately.
So, I don't know if there is an incompatibility between Samba 2.2.8 and
Win 2003 or whether the configuration of the PDC was somehow different
than the BDC and could have been changed to work. Once I had joined and
had my SID, there was no problem for anyone to connect and mount shares.
My constraint on my Sun servers is that I prefer to stick with
SunFreeware distributions unless it's absolutely necessary not to -- for
the moment that means using 2.2.8.
Anyway, ultimately it was fairly simple. (1) Add the computer to the
directory structure and click on the check box that says to allow pre
2000 authentication, (2) use "./smbpasswd -j domain -r PDCorBDC -U
admin-user" to join the domain and type the password when asked, (3)
make sure the config file for samba is all set.
workgroup = WHATEVER <-- domain name, even though it says workgroup
netbios name = SOMESUN <-- my samba server
security = DOMAIN
password server = *
encrypt passwords = Yes
preferred master = No
local master = No
domain master = No
wins server = 192.168.2.43 192.168.2.173 (or whatever)
