[Samba] MySQL passdb backend (mysql_init)?

Greetings All,

I am trying to use MySQL4 as the backend for authentication through Samba 3.0.0. When I finally got it to compile ok (damn that mysql/mysql.h) I cannot get it to work. Below you'll find the log transcript from when I try to connect with any client -- smbclient in this case. And yes, I have the MySQL-part setup correctly using the example mysql.dump from the dist and the user can connect ok and perform selects...

I would appreciate to hear from anyone who has attempted to pull off the same setup to see if this actually can be done!


The relevant rows from smb.conf are:
        passdb backend = mysql:mailserv
        mailserv:mysql host = [IP]
        mailserv:mysql password = [PASSWD]
        mailserv:mysql user = samba
        mailserv:mysql database = samba
        mailserv:mysql port = 3306
        mailserv:table = users
