[Samba] secret is bad

I am having a problem with Samba.  I am running Red Hat Linux v 8.0 with Samba v 2.2.8a.  I am also using Squid v2.5.Stable2 for proxy access.

The squid server is currently reporting the following errors:

(wb_ntlmauth)[18251](wb_ntlm_auth.c:273): fgets() failed! dying..... errno=0 (Success)
(wb_auth)[18263](wb_basic_auth.c:110): fgets() failed! dying..... errno=0 (Success)

This gives me a gut feeling that samba is not able to authenticate to the windows domain.

When I type /usr/local/samba/bin/wbinfo -t, the system returns secret is bad.  I've attempted to reattach to the domain by doing the following:

/usr/local/samba/bin/smbpasswd -j DOMAIN NAME -r DC NAME -U USERNAME

The system does prompt me for a password and then returns JOINED DOMAIN.

Is there something that I am missing?  Any advise or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you kindly.  -David
