Hello all:
I have Samba 3.0.10-1.4E installed on Redhat Linux 2.6.9, with the clients as WinXP SP2.  I have created a list of local users on Linux, and the appropriate Samba users using smbpasswd, I have also added myself to the smbusers file so it won't prompt me to log in when I connect to the share.  But it's not working.
Here's smb.conf
workgroup = MYDOMAINNAME
netbios name = myhostname
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
local master = no
domain master = false
kernel oplocks = no
oplocks = no
level2 oplocks = no
log level = 5
path = /tmp
read only = no
And /etc/samba/smbusers is (my login on windows and unix are the same):
nwang = nwang
But I'm still asked to log in when I try to connect to the share.  If I log in with my samba login/password everything's ok, obviously.
Is there anything I'm doing wrong?  Thank you in advance.
