 I have another machine where I haven't set up "msdfs proxy" and it works. I
even copied the smb.conf file of that machine over and still get the same
message. What I tried was to set my security to SHARE. I can log in the
machine but see only my root partition and not my home partition.

My smb.conf file looks like this

        workgroup = FLAMENGRO
        server string = Samba Server
        password server = None
        username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        max log size = 50
        acl compatibility = winnt
        server signing = auto
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_RCVBUF=8192
        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        preferred master = No
        local master = No
        domain master = No
        dns proxy = No
        ldap ssl = no
        idmap uid = 16777216-33554431
        idmap gid = 16777216-33554431
        cups options = raw

        comment = Home Directories
        read only = No
        browseable = No

        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba/
        printable = Yes
        browseable = No
