Hi everyone,

i´m using samba (2.2.8a)with ldap under linux (SuSE 9.0) as PDC for a smal
after the upgrade from samba (2.2.7a) i have a verry strange problem.

there are 2 workstations (ws_a / ws_b).
Both are members of the domain and can connect to the shares a.s.o.
ws_a has a own share of his hdd (C:)
Before the upgrade it was possible (without any confirmation) to connect
form ws_b to the share on ws_a.
After the upgrade it doesn´t work anymore / ws_a prompts for a password but
it does not
work with the users password.

Only one thing which can be seen in the logfile is:
that the uid is searched in capital letters but only if the user wants to
connect to the share of ws_a, if he connects to the server it is searched in

here the "normal" search:
Apr  5 10:07:11 server1 slapd[8196]: conn=64 op=1 SRCH
base="ou=people,dc=XXXXX" scope=2

here the "other" search:
Apr  5 10:08:37 server1 slapd[8197]: conn=66 op=1 SRCH
base="ou=people,dc=XXXXX" scope=2

about some hints where to start the search for the problem would be verry

best regards

Arno Seidel
