after long searching in the docs, the web and my Samba-books
I have to ask here.
I followed exact the steps described in the book: "samba-3 by example" up to chapter 5.

What kind of trouble indicates this errormessage after trying this:

	server:# smbclient //domain/SHARE -U user -d 2

	session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

In my client-logfile apperars always the same message: 

[2004/09/15 04:08:30, 0] auth/auth_util.c:make_server_info_info3(1122)
  make_server_info_info3: pdb_init_sam failed!

I found so many questions with the NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE - error, but 
no solution or at minimum any hint, what is going wrong here.

Connecting from a windows-box I get always the password-dialog-box.
