First off, thanks for answering.
After my previous message, I had already found out the above and did it.
I saw some improvement:
_ the logs about winbind not being "able to fetch auth credentials" are
_ "smbclient -L ..." succeeds, so authentication is in fact working;
_ however, access to shares still is denied to users from the trusted
It looks like Samba authenticates the user (against the DCs of the
trusted domain) and accepts it, but somehow fails to recognize him, so
he won't be correctly matched against "valid users".
Just to be clear: users from the trusted domain can access public
shares, as long as they provide a correct password.
I'm still investigating this and I'll report anything I'll find.
Any further suggestion is still appreciated.
bye & Thanks
