Hi Wolfgang,

The error message is:

Username TESTDOM\AWM013 is invalid on this system <--------------------
There it is
[2008/08/29 11:40:00, 3] smbd/error.c:error_packet_set(106)
error packet at smbd/sesssetup.c(444) cmd=115 (SMBsesssetupX)

The username is invalid !! Is AWM013 really a user with unix attributes 
in the Active Directory ?

You are working with winbind. Which backend do you use to save you unix 
user information ?  Windows Server 2003 R2 ?

Iam wondering i cant read an "idmap backend = " parameter in your smb.conf !

What is the result of "wbinfo -u" and "wbinfo -g" and "wbinfo -t" ???????
