Some default setting have changed.  Use: testparm -v  from your various
versions of samba to detect which parameters may be causing you issues.

Second try via gmane, because direct mail to the mailing list was rejected

... when using not-encrypted passwords.

Yes, I know, that is not the recommended secure way, but I want also AFS
authentication via samba and that does not work with encrypted windows

I have been doing this successfully for numerous years with all samba
generations from 1.x up to 3.3.x.
I do not see any changes in the 3.4 ChangeLog that could be related to this.

On the samba side there are no error messages in the log files (with
log levels). On the Windows side it either says no permission or repeatedly
for username/password.

Strange thing found during repeated test series with different samba
when I start with an older version and get my connections, then kill all
daemons and start new with 3.4 (with same configuration/data directories)
everything suddenly works again. The old connection are still usable and new
connections can also be made. Of course this is very confusing and makes it
to recognize what actually is going on.

Update to my first try to report this problöm: I see that there is now a
relatively new bugzilla entry #6666 which looks similar to my case. Could
be the same cause ???
