Try defining the IP address for "CAT" in your /etc/lmhosts file. Your WINS
server may not be supplying good information. Also, try to ping CAT at its
IP address. It doesn't appear to be reachable from where the Samba server

Subject: Samba connecting to NT PDC

Have a problem connecting Samba 2.2.7 on Redhat Linux 7.2 to a Win NT 4 PDC.
I have set the following in the smb.conf file:- 

security = domain 
password server = CAT 
encrypt passwords = yes 
local master = no 
os level = 0 
domain master = no 
preferred master = no 
domain logons = no 
wins server = 
dns proxy = no 

I have entered the Samba server as a Machine in the Server Manager. 

When I use the command:- 

smbpasswd -j lister -r CAT 

I get the following error message:-

modify_trust_password: unable to connect to SMB server on machine CAT. Error
was : code 0. 
2002/12/10 14:49:15 : change_trust_account_password: Failed to change
password for domain LISTER. 
Unable to join domain LISTER.
