I am having issues with joining samba 3.4.7 to MS-Active Directory, MS-2003 with SFU installed.

I am experiencing the same issue with the 3.4.7 version obtained from the pware site and with the version I have compiled on our IBM server.

The server joins to the domain without any issues.
All of the wbinfo commands run.. (IE: using options -u, -g, -a, -i, etc).
The command "wbinfo -iuser" returns the correct userid and primary group id.

I have modified the /etc/security/user and /usr/lib/security/methods.cfg files as required.
I have placed a copy of WINBIND into /usr/lib/security.

However when I try and telnet to the server I get the following error after I have entered a valid login and password.

3004-010 Failed setting terminal ownership and mode.

All references that I can find re this error on the internet says that the group ID  that is being used is not in the /etc/group file.
However it is.  All of the inbuilt AIX checks say there is nothing wrong with my passwd, group or security files.

If I login as a local user that uses the same group id I have no problems.

Has any one got any ideas as to what the problem might be.
