[Samba] winbind problems with linux domain member

Hey everyone,

I'm having some strange responses, and a bit of trouble with getting
access to a member server on my domain.  I've got Samba running on
another Linux box as a PDC, and my Win2k clients can login just fine,
and share between one another.  The problem comes in with another
Linux workstation that's setup as a member server.

Here's the relevant smb.conf section from the member server:

        workgroup = 102010
        server string = Samba Server %v
        log file = /var/log/samba3/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        dns proxy = no

        netbios name = miru
        security = domain
        printcap name = cups
        disable spoolss = yes
        show add printer wizard = no
        printing = cups

        idmap uid = 15000-20000
        idmap gid = 15000-20000
        winbind separator = +
        winbind use default domain = yes
        winbind enum users = yes
        winbind enum groups = yes
        winbind enable local accounts = no
        use sendfile = yes

testparm comes out okay, with the caveat that using '+' as a separator
might cause problems with group membership.  I also get success
response from wbinfo -t

What's strange is this:

miru root # wbinfo -u

Shouldn't it show the domain+user output?  

When I do:
miru root # getent passwd
ntp:x:123:123:added by portage for ntp:/dev/null:/bin/false

If I understand correctly, this is okay; listing the local users and
then the domain users.

When I do:

miru root # getent passwd sak

which is probably correct, but when I do:

miru root # getent passwd 102010+sak

I get no response whatsoever.  

All of this results in the shares on the member server showing up on
the domain, but unable to access them.  From a Win2k client, logged
into the domain, I can't get it to accept any type of login to access
a share on the member server.  When I try to access a share it asks
for a username and password.  If I try sak, it doesn't work, if I try
102010+sak it gives me an hourglass for about thirty seconds, and then
gives me "\\Miru\sak is not accessible. The specified username is

Anyway, I'm stuck.  I don't know what else to try.  Anyone have any
thoughts or suggestions?


i've got this epic problem
this epic problem's not a problem for me
and inside i know i'm broken
but i'm working as far as you can see
and outside it's all production
it's all illusion set scenery
