# [Samba] net view \\machine\Admin$fails with "_net_sam_logon: creds_server_step failed. Rejecting auth request from client ..." on the samba pdc side Urs Rau urs.rau at uk.om.org Wed Nov 8 23:10:08 GMT 2006 I am running my self compiled samba 3.0.21a PDC on centos 4.1. My Admin shares seem inaccessible across the network. When I do a "net view \\it-015\C$", or exactly same error for
\\it-015\Admin$or \\it-015\IPC$ shares, I get an error as follows on
the win xp pro sp2 machine IT-010:

System error 123 has occurred.
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

And each time I do this the samba server logs "_net_sam_logon:
creds_server_step failed. Rejecting auth request from client IT-015
machine account IT-015\$"

The IT-015 as well as my own, IT-010, machines were successfully joined
to the domain, and netdom on the two win xp pro machines also confirms
that the machines are properly part of the domain.

Type the password associated with the object user:
The secure channel from IT-10 to the domain MYDOMAIN has been verified.
The connection is with the machine \\MYPDC.
The command completed successfully.

Type the password associated with the object user:
The secure channel from IT-10 to the domain MYDOMAIN has been reset.
The connection is with the machine \\MYPDC.
The command completed successfully.

Any ideas how I can fix my samba PDC so it also thinks my machines are
part of the domain, not just the machines themselves?
