     I'm running Samba 3.0.9 on SuSE Enterprise Linux Server 9.0.  
Samba is acting as a PDC for Win2K/XP systems. I upgraded this system  
from samba 2.x running on  Mandrake 10. I brought over the old  
smbpasswd file. Domain logons work just fine. Today I changed a users  
password with smbpasswd and now they can't logon to any domain member  
workstation. I also created a new user and they are unable to logon  
as well.

     I can connect to shares with "net use X: /USER:DOMAIN\user \ 
\computer\share" so it looks like the password changed just fine.  
Can't figure out why it won't allow domain logons.

     Some of the things that I have tried so far... I converted  
smbpasswd to the new format. I changed the passdb backend from  
smbpasswd to tdbsam. Other useful info...  I'm not using LDAP to  
store UNIX user accounts. I'm using flat files (/etc/passwd & /etc/
