I am running Red Hat 9 and Samba 3.0.4.  I have a Win2K PC.  I have made the
registry change regarding requiresignorseal and signsecurechannel.  When I
try to join the domain it pops up the username and password.  I put in root
and it's password (which I have added/enabled with Swat).  However I get the
following results.
The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "domain":
The user name could not be found.
Here is my smb.conf file.

workgroup = DOMAIN

server string = rh1

max log size = 0

socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192

add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g 100 -s /bin/false -M %u

logon script = login.bat

logon home = \\%L\%U\.profile

domain logons = Yes

os level = 65

preferred master = Yes

domain master = Yes

dns proxy = No

ldap ssl = no

admin users = root


comment = The domain logon service

path = /etc/samba

browseable = No


comment = Public

path = /public

read only = No


comment = Home Directories

valid users = %S

read only = No

create mask = 0664

directory mask = 0775

browseable = No

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
