Hi there,

after several (pretended successful) rejoins to the domain it does not work
and we decided to give up the domain login concept and simply map the
shares by a batch file now. We also had to disable the downloadable printer
driver option, because not all drivers work correctly :-(

Betreff: [Samba] Problems with machine accounts

Hi all,

I'm really banging my head against the wall here.
I'm running Samba v2.2.8a as a PDC on OpenBSD v3.3-current, and I 
been able to join my Win2000 machines to the domain.

I have tried both manually and automatically to add machine accounts 
to smbpasswd file to no avail. It always takes 2-3 minutes for the 
Win2k machine to join the domain, suggesting that it really cannot.
This is confirmed after rebooting the Windows client when I get 
the error message
saying that the computer accout is missing or incorrect password.

Samba log files show nothing of importance to me.

Anyone have experience with Samba PDC and OpenBSD v3.3?
