   This is my smb.conf file content.
        workgroup = SMOKIN
#       map to guest = Bad User
        idmap gid = 10000-20000
        idmap uid = 10000-20000
        realm = SMOKIN.NET
        security = ADS
        usershare max shares = 100
        winbind refresh tickets = yes
        server string = Suse-vm2
        netbios name = Suse-vm2
        log level = 3
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m
        max log size = 50
        winbind separator = +
        encrypt passwords = yes
        preferred master = no
        template homedir = /home/%D/%U
        template shell = /bin/bash
        comment = Data
        path = /Data
        browseable = Yes
        read only = No
        inherit acls = Yes
        valid users = SMOKIN\administrator SMOKIN\user1 SMOKIN\user2
        write list = SMOKIN\Administrator

The Linux box runs Suse 10.1 and is names Suse-vm2 in the domain. "/Data" is a directory where access needs to be provided.
What am I doing wrong here?
Thanks for your help

Subject: [Samba] Problems accessing a Samba share while logged into an AD domain....

   I am having some problems a Samba server logged into an Active Directory Domain, acting as PDC on Windows 2003 server. When I log into the AD domain from my XP machine, I see the Linux server, which has also logged into the AD server and exported a few shares. From XP i see the share in explorer but when I try to access it it pops up a login/password box for me. When I enter the login id and password (which is my login id and password for the AD domain, which it should not ask as I am already logged into the domain), it tells me that it is incorrect.
   Do you what I have done wrong here? 
   If I am not logged into that particular AD domain where in the Linux/Samba server is loged and I try to access the Linux box from outside it works. What is the difference here? It still askes me for the Login id and password which is the AD login id and password (It should ask in this case as I am not logged into the domain).
   Any help or pointers will be appreciated.
