Hi Daniel and Tom,

I have a even worst situation, my NT domain users can never login my
Samba server under NT Domain authentication.
No problem with guest or specify a Unix user name.

I had every thing done according to documentation and Used wbinfo -u,
wbinfo -g, getent passwd, getent group to make sure it get 
groups and users on the NT Domain. 

Can you tell me how to specify a shre to a NT domain user and groups,
like '@domain+user' and '@group' ?

Been going through this mailing list for months now, but I didn't found
any follow-up on the same issue. Is it that difficult that
No one knows the solution ? I doubt it.  It's sad as I suppose an open
source community is based on collaboration. 

Would be glad if you can show me somewhere else to look for answers.

Hi Tom,

meanwhile I'm using Samba 2.2.8a, and I don't have a real solution for
the problem. I managed to reduce the occurance of the error by using
"security = domain" and "password server = *". The problem occures only
on about 6% of all clients (log level 1, max log size 300kB). So I
decided to ignore these errors. If a user complains about that (PW query
pops up, correct PW is rejected), I suggest to log off from windows and
log on again.

Best regards,
