Subject: [Samba] User account unable to be updated


Hello All,

	I have recently needed to add two new mounted network drives to a client   

workstation running Windows 2000 Professional. This machine is joined to   

the Samba 2.2.5-10 running PDC and has access to all of the network
shares, with proper permissions that it was configured with when the PDC   

was brought online roughly one and a half months ago.

	The user now requires permanent access to two additional network shares   

and those have been added to the user account logon .bat file, the
account has been added to the groups that have access to those shares and   

it has been confirmed that the shares is configured to allow all members   

of those groups access the share.

	Now, when the user logs onto the workstation, those new shares pause the   

logon .bat window and ask for a password. When the user account password   

is entered, the bat file continues and ends, without mounting up the new   


	So, I went into the My Network Places icon and attempted to manually
mount those shares. This popped up a Username/Password window and it
refused to mount up the share when the user account and password was
entered. I also used the username/password combination of all the users   

that have access to those shares and not a single username/password
combination functioned. (Although with using other username/passwords an   

error message about the credentials being used elsewhere popped up on the   


	I have read some remarks on this list regarding machine passwords and
how those are typically automatically updated by Windows 2000 machines
across a Windows Domain. Could that be causing the problems that I am
experiencing with this user account?

	If so, how does one go about fixing this issue?
