When I attempt to join computer to my samba NT domain it prompts me for my username and password. I use root as the user, however it then says that "the username could not be found." Even though I know the root samba user exists as I added him with the
"smbpasswd -a root" command
Also, I am sure that it is checking the correct smbpasswd file, as if I try to join a computer to a domain using one of my other samba users it says "acces denied."
So, can anyone help me out with...
1. Getting root to be recognized as a samba user.
2. Getting another user that I add to my sama server to be able to join computers to the domain.
Any help is appreciated, thanks.
Just adding the user with 'smbpasswd -a' should be sufficient. Did you remember to restart the samba server afterwards?"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."

Did the user set their password to the same as it is on the windows machine?
You dont have plain text passwords turned on in XP do you?
There are Unix accounts as well as samba accounts set up for each user, aren't there?Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
