I have installed Samba 2.2.8a onto a Solaris 2.5.1 system from Sunfreeware.
Config file has been copied from another similar working system and all that
was changed was the netbios name.

Using smbpasswd to join the domain does not seem to be working.  No message
is displayed to say either domain joined or not.  secrets file is created
and an account is created on the domain.  Machine is browsable, but cannot
connect to the shares.  Error message in log is:

[2004/10/13 14:39:14, 0] smbd/password.c:domain_client_validate(1558)
domain_client_validate: could not fetch trust account password for domain

Any ideas?
