Hi all

I've a SAMBA 3.0.33 server running  on Solaris 10 sparc.

The server is joined  to a Windows ADS.

I'm getting the following error when trying to access the share as an AD
user from a windows machine.

[2009/09/29 10:48:05, 2] smbd/service.c:(616)
  user 'FIRSTGROUP\admandymarr' (from session setup) not permitted to
access thi
s share (lsww)
[2009/09/29 10:48:05, 3] smbd/error.c:(106)
  error packet at smbd/reply.c(514) cmd=117 (SMBtconX)

I setup a temp share with an empty valid users list , but I get the same

I'm not sure if the user should have the domain\user when trying to
access the share ? 

I'm so close :-)

Any pointers would be great ?
