Yes.  I have a share called "NRL Folders"  I can't browse it or any 
other shares.  On the local machine I can; that is, on the server I can 
use the smbclient to connect to and list shares that way.  But 
not from another machine.

It's not a network thing, because it is user-specific.  Any user who has 
been added, or who has had his or her password changed, since the 
migration to the new machine cannot log on from other computers (but can 
connect with smbclient on  So I assumed it was a problem 
related to secrets.tdb, since the names of the machines have changed and 
I know this sort of thing is in the secrets.tdb file.
