hi all

i seem to be having a problem replicating an installation of samba as a "domain member server" to our NT4 PDC

when i initally installed samba i was able to use the DC's as the authentication source to allow the windows workstation access to the samba share via winbind, it all worked well, as documented, i didn't even need to setup user accounts on the samba box.

now that i'm building the production server, i can't seem to replicate the success, no matter what i try the samber server keeps returning a username and password dialog box to the windows users and logs the below error for the users trying to connect....

I successfully joined the domain by " smbpasswd -j PDC -r PDCNAME -U Administrator"
(Note: I needed to add the samber server to the domain on the PDC first before I could join on the samba server)

my smb.conf
netbios name = SAMBA
workgroup = PDC
log level = 2
log file = /usr/local/samba/var/samba.log.%U
security = domain
hosts allow = 192.xx.xxx. 127.
password server = *
encrypt passwords = yes
wins server = 192.xx.xx.xx
winbind cache time = 15
winbind uid = 10000-20000
winbind gid = 10000-20000
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes

path = /array/samba
browseable = yes
writeable = yes

the correct libnss_winbind links in /lib
  -rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root          17K May 28 17:59 libnss_winbind.so
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           17 May 28 19:32 libnss_winbind.so.1 -> libnss_winbind.so
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           17 May 28 18:02 libnss_winbind.so.2 -> libnss_winbind.so

passwd:     files winbind
shadow:     files
group:      files winbind

only problem is, i don't recall if i needed to setup PAM, if I do can anyone point me in the right direction, do I need to edit "/etc/pam.d/login" so the windows users can authenticate and access the share ?

any suggestion would be appreciated.
