Hi, i've tried to configure samba 2.2.7 + winbind on a Mandrake 9.0
linux system, and all work fine, but i've only a problem: when i connect
with any Windows XP Client the system ask to me the Username/password 
(the computer is in a NT 4 domain) and in the syslog i can see this line:

 cli_net_sam_logon_internal: NT_STATUS_WRONG_PASSWORD
 domain_client_validate: unable to validate password for user Admin in domain METRO_MILANO
to Domain controller *. Error was NT_STATUS_WRONG_PASSWORD.

but my password is correct otherwise i can't connect to the server!

Here is my smb.conf:

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from (
# Date: 2003/03/28 14:54:54

# Global parameters
	client code page = 852
	workgroup = EDIZIONI_METRO
	netbios name = SUPPORT
	server string = Support Server for IT
	security = DOMAIN
	encrypt passwords = Yes
	update encrypted = Yes
	password server = *
	ssl CA certDir = /etc/ssl/certs
	log file = /var/log/samba.%m
	max log size = 50
	domain admin group = Administrators
	preferred master = No
	dns proxy = No
	wins server =
	winbind uid = 10000-20000
	winbind gid = 10000-20000
	winbind separator = +
	winbind use default domain = Yes

	comment = Home Directories
	read only = No
	browseable = No

	comment = All Printers
	path = /var/spool/samba
	printable = Yes
	browseable = No

I think that is too simple configuration, and the Win NT4 and Win 2000
client appears work good!

Thanks for the attention and sorry for my English.
