[Samba] Can't join domain - no message

Now I'm confused!

If it is ending with no message either way, I guessed smbpasswd must be
aborting somehow, but not giving STDERR, so I just did a truss on smbpasswd.
It worked! ...giving the messge Joing Domain.

Tried again normally, but same result - no passwd.

Started samba, connected fine.

The end result has been achieved - ie samba working, but not sure why join
failed until I ran it under truss.

Anyone any ideas?

Thanks for your reply Jerry, I guess it got me to think about the problem
from another angle.

You should get some configmarion such as "joined domain BLAH"
Is that IP address corret ?  Does smbpasswd every connect ?
The log file shouldn't just stop.  There should be a lot
more information after that last line.

cheers, jerry
