Thanks for looking at it. I just realized when I pasted the globals for
the PDC I missed two lines one was the "win support = yes", so it's in
As for the "password server = *", I've had much better luck giving it
the explicit IP address, whihc is legal.
I have had made some progress and I can access the shares. I discovered
that the force group parameter was causing problems so I worked around
it. I'm still baffled by why it worked sometimes before.
I now have a new problem. I can't delete files, Windows says the file is
in use nad access is denied.
