Hi there, I have

Redhat 7.1 + samba 2.07

Suse 8.2  + samba 2.28


I am not able to change any permissions on samba shares from windows.
Either my explorer chrashes or on the server I get a message saying
unable to save permission changes (on suse samba share) or ( on redhat
samba share) cant verify that the "fileserver" is a member of a domain.
Both machines are added to the domains and they are in active directory
under computers. They have been added with smbpasswd -j command to the
w2k pdc. When I add new user the user just disappears. And there user
Everyone is constantly there. Also in w2k I am not able to change nor
see any of the permissions to the people already there (if I add them
from the samba side). 

Please help,
