Hi all.

I am using Samba 2.0.7,REV=1 on a Sun Solaris box.  I set this up about two
years ago.  The last month or so I have been having problems with it.  We
have a Windows 2000 domain controller that the users log in to.  The clients
are Windows NT4.0 are Windows 2000.  I primarily use Samba for printer
sharing.  There is a OCE9400 printer on one of the Sun boxes.  Samba is
installed on another Sun box.  Now the Windows users can seem to log on any
more.  It gives me the following error when I try:  net use x: \\rsd5\usr4
/user:RSD\don.  System error 1240 has occurred.  The account is not
authorized to login from this station.  It gives me the same error if I try
root or any other user.  Can anybody please help.  Here is my smb.conf file.
