I've seen several posts that are similar to my setup but not exactly.
Here's the setup network-wise:
1) I have 3 distinct subnets, A, B, and C.
2) I have a Solaris machine on Subnet B running samba 2.2.8a. I have
it setup to announce and sync to at least one machine on subnets A and
3) All of the machines are Win2K in peer to peer mode, ie no domain
controller, and are configured to use the same WORKGROUP name.
4) On machine 1 on subnet A, I have it configured to use the samba
host on subnet B as the WINS server.
For my samba machine I have basically these settings:
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
unix password sync = yes
os level = 65
domain master = yes
local master = yes
preferred master = yes
wins support = yes
1) I was able to successfully connect from any of the machines on
subnet B to the samba machine after I added my userid using smbpasswd.
2) I can see the samba server from all 3 subnets using network
When I try to connect via network neighborhood from computer 1A subnet
A, it says "The account is not authorized to log in from this
station". I have checked the registry and it doesn't appear to have
the send plain text hack installed.
If I use smbclient -L to pretend to be computer 1A, it lets me browse
anonymously. If I log in using a correct account and password it says
"NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED". If I give it the wrong password it says
If I use smbclient -L to pretend to be a computer 1B, it doesn't let
me browse anonymously, error "NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED". If I log in
using correct credentials, it lets me browse. With a wrong password, I
get error "NT_STATUS_LOGON FAILURE".
1) To get this to work, do I HAVE to have the samba machine work as a
2) Do I have to create a new DOMAIN for the machines to log into?
3) Can I get this to work using a "WORKGROUP" setup?
Any help would be much appreciated.
