I configured samba as a PDC and I could successfully register my windows xp
sp3 client to my domain controller.  When I login locally to the client (XP)
and I browse my network I see my domain and I can browse the network shared
(if I need to login, the password is accepted)


Now  when I try to login via the PDC I get the following error: "the system
cannot log you on due to the following error: one or more arguments are


My configuration is the following:


                name resolve order = wins lmhosts hosts

                passwd chat debug = yes

                idmap gid = 10000-15000

                passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n

                passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u

                #map to guest = bad user

                #encrypt passwords = true




   comment = Home Directories

   browseable = no

   valid users = %S

   read only = no



   comment = Network Logon Service

   admin users = Administrator 

   valid users = %U

   path = /home/samba/netlogon

   guest ok = yes

   read only = yes

   share modes = no



   comment = Users profiles

   path = /home/samba/profiles

   valid users = %U

   guest ok = no

   browseable = no

   create mask = 0600

   directory mask = 0700

   writeable = yes



Does anybody has an idea on how to solve this.


Best regards
