I have an authentication problem with Samba 3.0RC2 and a Windows 2003
Setup: SuSE 8.2 with Heimdal Kerberos, Samba 3.0RC2 compiled from source
with options "--with-ads --with-pam --with-acl-support". Setup according
to Samba-HOWTO-Collection.html#ads-member.

Joining the domain succeeded, also the creation of the Adminaccount (net
join -U Administrator) went fine.

But a "net use * \\samba-server\public from the win 2003 server
"adswintest" fails. 
log.adswintest yields:
 make_server_info_info3: pdb_init_sam failed.

Also accessing the windows server with
smbclient -L //adswintest -k fails with
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_OK

Is this a compilation problem or a configuration issue??
