I'm having problems connecting from a Mac OS X (v10.2) box to a Linux (Red Hat 
9, kernel 2.4.23) box running Samba as a PDC. The Mac OS box is running Samba 
2.2.3a (build 26), the Linux box running Samba 3.0.1.

The problem seems to be the following: (this is a level 4 log, I think)

[2004/01/13 10:41:18, 4] auth/auth_sam.c:sam_password_ok(227)
  sam_password_ok: Checking NT MD4 password
[2004/01/13 10:41:18, 3] auth/auth_sam.c:sam_password_ok(243)
  sam_password_ok: NT MD4 password check failed for user epayne

[2004/01/13 10:41:18, 2] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(312)
  check_ntlm_password:  Authentication for user [epayne] -> [epayne] FAILED 
[2004/01/13 10:41:18, 3] smbd/error.c:error_packet(94)

  error packet at smbd/sesssetup.c(817) cmd=115 (SMBsesssetupX) 

Windows (NT 4.0, 98, 2000 and XP Pro) and other Linux boxes can connect fine, 
as did this Mac before I upgraded to 3.0.1 (2.2.8 definately on the server 
and Im pretty sure it worked with 3.0.0 as well). Is there some known 
incompatibility between 2.2.3a and 3.0.1, or is this a bug, or is there a 
known work-around, or should I supply more logs, and if so what level? I have 
a level 10 dump but it doesnt seem to have that much more than the dump 
above, apart from random lines...

Incidentally I know I should upgrade to 2.2.8, is there any way of doing this 
without losing the integration with NetInfo and stuff - upgrade from Apple or 

Thanks in advance for any help :)
