Did something with authentication change between those two versions that I missed somewhere?From the release notes of 3.4.0:The default passdb backend has been changed to 'tdbsam'! That breaks existing setups using the 'smbpasswd' backend without explicit declaration! Please use 'passdb backend = smbpasswd' if you would like to stick to the 'smbpasswd' backend or convert your smbpasswd entries using e.g. 'pdbedit -i smbpasswd -e tdbsam'.
All right! I just received Samba 3.4.2 from Lenny backports, and Windows stopped working. I tried that 'pdbedit -i smbpasswd -e tdbsam' and restarted Samba but no joy. I then changed the 'passdb backend = smbpasswd' into smb.conf and it works again. However, smbpasswd passdb will be obsoleted some day, and I would like to have a working tdbsam. I have no plans on implementing LDAP, as my server is low on memory and I have only 2 SMB users. Why did the pdbedit command did not work? I printed to screen several Linux machine users (who do not use Samba) but not us real users who do need Samba. -- http://www.iki.fi/jarif/ Good day for a change of scene. Repaper the bedroom wall.
