   See 'net rpc join' for this functionality

I'm thinking Sid's version of Samba is too new, and has introduced some sort of incompatibility.

So I did "net rpc join -U <DOMAIN_ADMIN>", which produced this:

[2002/12/09 21:56:24, 1] rpc_client/cli_netlogon.c:cli_nt_setup_creds(303)
 cli_nt_setup_creds: auth2 challenge failed NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

[2002/12/09 21:56:24, 1] utils/net_rpc.c:run_rpc_command(156)
 rpc command function failed! (NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED)

Mmmmm...  in win server:
c:> net localgroup "Pre-Windows 2000 Compatible Access" everyone /add (reboot the server)

Uh-oh. I have a "We'll let him have Domain Admin access as long as he doesn't make waves" sort of privileged account, and I'm not sure the real sysadmins would go for this. I'll float it by them though.

on my pc: (always the same /etc/*)

- woody samba (2.2.3a-6) = error
- woody + samba 2.2.6 = ok
- sarge (unstable) ? (I didn't try it)

The "getent passwd" and "getent group" commands show me username and group names in the ACU domain. However, when I switch over to a second virtual terminal and try to log in, I get "Login incorrect". I've tried logging in as "ACU+snert" (snert is a legitimate user on the ACU domain), as "snert", and as "westk" (westk is a local account on the box, and it now fails also, so I better not have a power outage between now and when I get this fixed - doh!).

you must use "username" and "password" of your domain account.
(and it works!)

I suggest you to use "stable" woody +samba 2.2.6
I couldn't install it. Some sort of dependency problem. So I just switch to unstable, not realizing there was such a big difference between Samba2.2.6 and Sid's samba. I may downgrade and see what happens.

I don't know anything else...  good luck! :)

Thanks very much! At least now I know it CAN work.
