	Yes. Send you smb.conf and some information (uid, gid,
home, shell) about a user that can login and a user that can't
login. We also need the configuration of nsswitch (libnss).

	'getent passwd' is working as expected?

	And I find hard to understand the exact problem.

a) New users created in Win can't login in Linux?
b) New users created in Linux can't login in Win?
c) New users created in Win can't login in Win?
d) New users created in Linux can't login in Linux?

	Kind regards,
