SLES 10.1 Samba 3.0 unable to confirm encrypt passwords = yes with testparam


Hello, I am trying to prove that I have encrypt passwords set to on for our security staff. I know the software default is on

When we set the value in our /etc/samba/smb.conf file to:
encrypt passwords = yes
the testparam command does not show this value in its output. When I issue a testparam command I do not see any values for encrypt . Example follows.

Question #2 is:

If a XP system has the Reg setting -> Microsoft network client: Send unencrypted password to third-part SMB servers is Enabled

What happens when the xp system tries to map the drive, does it try encrypted if unencrypted does not work?

Thanks!
ray
