Hi, i'm trying to configure a samba-3.0.9-2.3 with suse 9.2 and openldap2-2.1.12-74 in another server  but i have a strange problem. My samba schema is old and i have use the ldapsam_compat parameter on samba 3. 

My problem:

I mount a share of samba 3 server on my linux:

# mount -t smbfs -o username=joanr // /mnt
30004: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
SMB connection failed

The log:

The most strange is that if i go to the entry of joanr on my openldap server, some fields are deleted, for example the ntPassword lmPassword... and the user is disabled.

My smb.cof:

# version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE
# Date: 2004-10-05
        workgroup = dpd
        username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
        map to guest = Bad User
        passdb backend = ldapsam_compat:ldap://
        ldap admin dn = cn=Manager,o=unipost
        ldap suffix = o=unipost
        security = user
        encrypt passwords = yes
        netbios name = serverdpd
        hosts allow = 192.9. localhost 192.168.
        wins server =
        name resolve order = host wins lmhosts bcast
        interfaces = lo, eth0, eth1, eth2
        os level = 65
        log level = 3 passdb:5 auth:10 winbind:2

        comment = dpd
        path = /home/dpd
        read only = no
        valid users = @informatica9

P.S: i have another samba 2 server and works correctly with this openldap server.

Any help?
