Hello list

We have migrated from our samba 3 domain to samba 4 and we are still trying to figure somethings

I have two servers, one is my domain pdc named dominio, my other one is a fileserver with samba 3.6.6 named srvfs

So, i've joined srvfs to my domain using net ads and everything is ok, i can see the users and validate them

But i have a particular case with a few users, this is the case

If i check the user ulisesbonilla on my domain, i can see this.

root at dominio samba]# pdbedit -Lv ulisesbonilla
Unix username:        ulisesbonilla
NT username:
Account Flags:        [U          ]

[root at dominio samba]#

on my fileserver (samba 3.6) i can see the user

[root at srvfs ~]# net ads user info ulisesbonilla
Domain Users

But when the user tries to validate the samba always says NT_ACCESS_DENIED

When i try to retrieve the user using getent passwd it returns nothing

[root at srvfs log]# getent passwd ulisesbonilla
[root at srvfs log]#

however i can retrieve other users:

[root at srvfs log]# getent passwd balco3
[root at srvfs log]#

There are a few users with this problem, has someone any suggestion?

Thanks in advanced
