I'm trying to get Samba 3.0.2a running on a redhat 9 system. 
No matter how long I leave samba running it fails to generate 
a local SID for my network and I'm stumpped.

The following is a dump of my smb.conf

[root at omega samba]# net getlocalsid
[2004/04/18 14:59:21, 0] utils/net.c:net_getlocalsid(422)
  Can't fetch domain SID for name: OMEGA

Regards John
