Can't Logon to a samba PDC with Windows XP


I have been trying to setup a Samba PDC on White Box linux. I have been able to get to the point where the XP box can see the domain however when ever i try to join it with the use of the administrator user, I get an error of "Logon failure: unknow user name or bad password" however i have mapped the Domain Admin groups to the root group, and in the smbuser file root appears to be mapped to administrator and admin. I have tried everything that i can think of and have not been able to get it to work. smbclient on the server box won't let me use the administrator, user to logon to the domain. I would appreciate any help on this issue, as I am kind of a Samba PDC newbie. Thanks in advance

FTP doesn't allow logging in as root. Maybe SAMBA doesn't either. Other users can login OK?

i've been there, and eventually solved it. It's all about smb.conf being in a root-owned library, which means machines outside the Linux box don't have access. I moved smb.conf to "home" and made a couple of other mods, and it works.

See here for more.

What message are you getting from the Windows machine?

If you try to access the Linux machine from itself via Samba, does the workgroup show, or the computer, and can you access it that way? That should indicate whether or not Samba and Lisa are working.

Did you copy smb.conf to a /home/ folder and make it "user" owned? That was what cracked the problem for me. That was after setting up Lisa and smb.conf correctly. I've only cracked it since I dumped Mandrake and Suse, so I don't know if this fix would work with those. It certainly does with Knoppix.
