There are many discussions about this problem, but none of the
developers of samba stepped in and gave any good explanation.
Is this solved in Samba3.0.0 official release? (In what's new section of
3.0.0rc4, the 14th point is win2k3 security settings related matter. Is
this the fix for SMB signature?)
In one of the discussions there is a mention of disabling security
option of Digitally Sign Communications and resetting the Admin password
to make it work with Win2K3.  Is this required for getting samba3.0.0 to
work with win2k3 server?
In one of the discussions there is a suggestion to use MIT Krb 1.3.1 for
encryption type match. I am using the correct version only. Here is the
$ strings libkrb5.so | grep BRAND
KRB5_BRAND: krb5-1-3-1-final 1.3.1 20030730
Is this not enough to make samba3.0.0 work?
Any other discussions/comments on this problem are appreciated.
