[Samba] Q: winbindd and samba with "use default domain"

I am trying to use winbind as the authentication mechanism for the Unix
servers. I have this final roadblock, and would appreciate to get some
In a test on a Linux box, everything works greatly, telnet, ftp, pop3,
ssh. However, ironically, it broke samba. I suspect that the problem might
be that I use "use default domain = yes" option.
It is because we want to make everything transparent to users. (For
example, use existing pop account setting.)
At the moment,
smbclient -L mySambaServer -U myDomain\\myUser
seems to work. However, I cannot use the share from Windows side.
net use y: \\mySambaServer\myShare /user:myDomain\myUser gives me (after
password): (/user:myUser gives the same.)
"System error 86 has occurred. The specified network password is not
I'm using the following options in smb.conf
security = domain
encrypt password = yes
password server = *
winbind use default domain = yes
obey pam restrictions = yes
comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes
valid users = %S
create mode = 0664
directory mode = 0775
Here's /etc/pam.d/samba config.
auth required pam_nologin.so
auth required pam_winbind.so
auth required pam_stack.so service=system-auth
account required pam_winbind.so
account required pam_stack.so service=system-auth
session sufficient pam_winbind.so
session required pam_stack.so service=system-auth
password sufficient pam_winbind.so
password required pam_stack.so service=system-auth
If possible I'd like to run samba server with "security=server and encrypt
password=no" option while running winbind (for other services) with the
above options, but I failed to make it work. This did not work.
winbindd -s configFile1
smb -s configFile2
The problem seems again to be the winbind separator thing.
I'd like to ask, if anyone uses winbind for logon unification, are you
using it with the winbind separator? is it possible to do away with the
separator and satisfy samba as well?
