I have tried upgrading to Samba-3.0.13 and we are having problems.


When Samba is started it reports that it has joined the domain successfully.


Although wbinfo -u and wbinfo -g returns user and group information when a
user tries to connect to the share they are just presented with a logon
dialogue box and the share is inaccessible.

The logs in /usr/local/samba/var have the following problems.

  This usually means that you are running old wbinfo, pam_winbind or

ind clients

We are authenticating to an NT4.0 sp6 PDC.

The OS is sparc Solaris 8 running Veritas Cluster. The cluster initiates a
start script to run Samba.

We have a very simple smb.conf and only use Samba to share resources on the
UNIX box.

Samba was compiled with acl-support, libiconv and winbind


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
