Can't log into SAMBA at first time
Hey guys, how are you?
Well, I'm having some problems with SAMBA that are really pissing me off. Let me explain:
At first, we had a RH 9 server running. It always crashed and it was far away from update and since RH isn't releasing any more free updates, we've chosen to change it to Debian. I choose it because I'm pretty more used to it.
When we were zeroing the server, we setup it to run at 192.168.3.5 until we bring up all the services (SAMBA, NAMED, DHCP, NIS and NFS). We had a lot of problems during the process and a implementation that usually would take nothing more than 2 days is taking a week, just because SAMBA isn't tunned up.
Well, that especific problem is that when we changed the IP address to 192.168.3.2, the clients can't login at first, but when they try again, with the same user and password, all became and things work out. The error seems to be something related to users or passwords, because it pops up a message talking about it (I'm not at work right now, so I can't paste it).
The guy that works with me say it's something related to WINS, but my guess is that is something related to passwords and all that plain-encrypted-ntlm-ntlm2-and-blah-blah-blah stuff. I guess that because since the client finds out the server and receive an answer like that, it seems that there are connection after all.
I was looking for the answer in Google and all the search engines that I never heard of and I stiff have no answer. So... if anybody could help not losing my job, I would be happy.
Sorry about my lousy english, I'm brazilian.
Hugs and so on.
