Samba Server Name: hamilton
Samba Server OS: HP-UX 11.11
Samba Version: 2.2.3.a

Hi All,
I have the same version of Samba running on many of our HP servers with almost identical smb.conf file and configured the same way. No other Samba server seem to be having any problems except this one (hamilton). When a legitimate user tries to access a Samba share from a Windows client, it asks for his/her User name & password, and it won't accept the user's current network id & password.

Can anyone advise as to what might be the problem and how to fix it. Many thanks in advance.
