[Samba] Authentication issues with Samba 4.3.8

Hi Rowland,

Sorry I missed your previous mail.

Our servers are not having any ldap or AD for authentication. It is using tdbsam option as password database, and yes all the users and groups are stored locally in the /etc/passwd and /etc/group.

I will try removing the "encrypt password = no". 

Below is the whole old smb.conf file. 

bash-4.2$ cat /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf
        server string = Samba on AIX
        encrypt passwords = No
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        log level = 2
        max log size = 1000
        preferred master = No
        local master = No
        domain master = No
        dns proxy = No
        wins server = XXXXXX
        hosts allow = XXXXXX

        comment = All Printers
        path = /usr/spool/samba
        printable = Yes
        browseable = No

        comment = Temporary file space
        path = /tmp
        read only = No

Thank you for the help !!

OK, way back when you started posting about this issue, you posted his as your smb.conf:

        workgroup = XXXX
        server string = XXXXXXX
        encrypt passwords = no
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        log level = 2
        max log size = 1000
        preferred master = no
        local master = no
        domain master = no
        domain logons = no
        dns proxy = no
        wins server = X.X.X.X, X.X.X.X
        hosts allow = 10., 149.83., 127.

Andrew advised you to remove 'encrypt passwords = no'

Before we go any further, can you tell us if this Samba machine is a domain member, if so, what sort of domain, NT4-style or AD

If it isn't a domain member, is LDAP involved in any way, or are your users/groups just stored in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
