I have passwords stored in passdb.tdb by smbpasswd in Solaris Express 11. For existing accounts, all passwords, including those more than 8 characters, work. However, when I created a new account and assigned it a password greater than 8 characters, I am unable to login from Mac OS X 10.6.8 and Windows Server 2008. The smbclient on the Solaris server still works. Passwords 8 characters or fewer work everywhere.
