I'm using samba-3.2.6. 
Got the following error while connecting to a server which supports ntlm v2 only.


Then I changed /etc/samba/smb.conf to include the following line..

client NTLMv2 auth = yes

Even then I got the same error.

Then recompiled the samba source by making the following change..

< Globals.bClientNTLMv2Auth = False;
>Globals.bClientNTLMv2Auth = True;

Then it worked.

My questions...
1) Why it failed even though I've added "client NTLMv2 auth = yes" to smb.conf
2) What are the side effects of the change Globals.bClientNTLMv2Auth = True. Is this recommended?
