Firstly, you should never need to set such a user in Samba 3.0, against
Win2k.  If you joined with 'net ads join', and use 'security=ads'
correctly, we simply do not need this fuss.

However, your problem is simply that of shell escaping.

See, if you run

wbinfo --set-auth-user=domain\manju%pass

wbinfo sees '--set-auth-user=domainmanju%pass'

Make it \\ and all should be fine.
