Hi there,

My setup:
Domain A(DomA): Win2000ServerSP4 as Domain Controller (PDC)
Domain B(DomB): Samba 3.0.14a with openldap 2.1.30 as Role Domain PDC

Where Domain B trusting Domain A ( ie. DomA\user can log on to PC from DomB
Worked fine on pulling user/group info from DomA by Wbinfo -u, wbinfo-g and
network sharing was OK.

This setup has been using for year without any problem until a Win2k3 server
is introduced onto DomA as additional DCs.

All of the users in DomA are no longer be authenicated on the PCs from DomB
which saying a incorrect username/password.
Wbinfo -u (& wbinfo -g)  --> "Error looking up domain users"
wbinfo -t --> checking the trust secret via RPC calls failed
		         error code was  (0x0)
	               Could not check secret
Wbinfo -m --> DomA is shown

wbinfo --sequence -->DomA : DISCONNECTED
		                      BUILTIN : 1
		                      DomB : 1

>From the log:
Log.winbindd keeps generating this:
[2005/07/25 15:33:05, 5]
  Could not lookup name for user SOMEONE

Checked with the trust setting on DomA --> OK
Checked on DomB --> net rpc trustdom list  shows DomA under "Trusting

Remove "DomA$" from openldap, delete the trust ( net rpc trustdom del DomA)

Re-establish the trust as stated from the How-To, the trust is established
but no luck 

Please help!
