	You might want to consider updating to the latest version of
Samba and then give your configuration another go. It is possible that a
component relating to what your issue is has been updated and could fix
your issue.

	If after updating to the latest release and the problem still
exists, then repost to the list. (I have seen a few issues rectified
with a simple Samba update. So, it might work in your case too.)

Subject: [Samba] Security =Domain problems

Hey all,
    Posted this about a week ago, have received no response, so I¹ll try

I¹m currently trying to setup my box (samba 2.2.3a) to authenticate to a
win2k AD PDC.  I am currently importing users via LDAP, AD user
authentication is working like a champ, however, SMB authentication is
I can get it to work if I take out security=domain and change encrypt
passwords to NO. 
The following configuration works perfectly (albeit with plaintext
passwords) :

    Security = USER
    Encrypt passwords = NO
    Password server = ADPDC1

However, if I change it to this, it¹s broken:
    Security = DOMAIN
    Encrypt passwords = YES
    Password server = ADPDC1

When trying to log in, authentication is broken.  I¹ve succesfully
the domain from my box using:

Smbpasswd ­j domain ­r ADPDC1 ­u Administrator

The problem is that there are a ton of 98 boxes logging on to this
including remote users, and it¹s impossible to set them all up to use
text.  My guess is that this is a setting on my Active directory
but I haven¹t been able to find it.  Does anyone have any suggestions?
help is appreciated greatly.
