    I've installed samba3 from source onto a SuSE 8.1 system... I didn't do
anything special when compiled, just a regular ./configure; make; make
Now I added the following to the smb.conf file...
security = domain
workgroup = tssi
password server = orl-fps
netbios name = testbed
server string = testbed (Samba3 source)
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
preferred master = No
local master = No
domain master = No
dns proxy = No
idmap uid = 10000-20000
idmap gid = 10000-20000
winbind separator = +
winbind cache time = 15
ldap ssl = no
log level = 2
os level = 10
path = /var/lib/tomcat
comment = Tomcat
browseable = yes
read only = No
guest ok = no
writeable = yes
comment = Home Directories
valid users = %S
browseable = no
read only = No
guest ok = no
writeable = yes
path = /home/samba/profiles
profile acls = yes
writeable = yes
browseable = no
guest ok = yes
comment = Temporary file space
path = /tmp
read only = no
public = yes

Then started smbd and winbindd....
Did the following to join the server to the domain...
net join -S TSSI -Uaramos
It gives me the following ...
Unable to find a suitable server
Unable to find a suitable server

With the same configuration on a SuSE 9.1 server that already comes with
samba3 worked fine, is there an option I should add when compiling or
something in the conf file that I have to add in the source?  I've been
trying to figure it out for the last couple of weeks on my own with no
success, so I'm asking for help!!!
