[Samba] Samba Authentication against NT domain

	Thank you for the information, but I already have all those settings
in my smb.conf file.  Actually, I have compared the two smb.conf files (on
the system that works and the one that doesn't) and they are EXACTLY the
same except for server name and IP address.  

	I was thinking there was some other file or setting, possibly in the
OS and not in the regular Samba files???

Any other ideas?
Thanks again,

You have to set the parameter security to domain or server;

security = server --> if you are going to use another samba box to

Security = domain --> if you are going to use a NT box to authenticate

if you use "domain" you have to set "encrypt passwords = yes" and
"password server = your-pdc your-bdc"

I thing that´s all..
