You are doing it right. It maps the variable %U (the name samba gets from you on your windows box when you connect) to the UNIX name you specify. NT is the one having the problem, as it is getting your UNIX username. This is expected behavior.

Subject: [Samba] mapping usernames between Windows and Linux
My username is different on my Linux box than on my Windows box so I used
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
in my smb.conf file and this file includes the line
steve = steveb
However when I'm logged on to my Linux box as 'steve' and use the
smbclient command like this:
# smbclient //<Windows computer>/Shared
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
it still tries to log me on with my Linux username. I checked this using
Ethereal. The environment variables $USER and $LOGNAME are both set to
# smbclient //<Windows computer>/Shared -U steveb%<my password>
works OK. Can someone tell me how to do this mapping correctly?
I'm using samba-2.2.7-2 on a RH8.0 box.
