Does that mean that logons should be possible with security=server mode?  I
can attest that security=domain does not work at all.  It was when I had
set security to server that I was able to get some semblance of a
coversation between Samba and the OS/2 server.  However, the Session Setup
AndX request is made with an empty Account field.  To that the OS/2 domain
controller responds with an access denied error and that is the end of it.

If it is possible using security=server mode does anyone have an idea of how
Samba needs to be configured?  This is what I have in smb.conf that is
relevant to this issue:
workgroup = MYWG
netbios name = SMBSRV
security = server
password server = PDC
preferred master = no
domain master = no
domain logons = no
encrypt passwords = yes

comment = "NT Domain netlogon commands"
path = /opt/samba/netlogon
writeable = no
guest ok = no
share modes = no

comment = "User profiles"
path = /opt/samba/profiles
browseable = no
