Problems with Samba as a Domain Controller
Hi, I'm having some problems with Samba... I can successfully join a Samba-controlled domain from Linux, but from Windows XP, it tells me that "The specified user does not exist" and samba's log says " get_md4pw: Workstation r0x0r$: no account in domain" ... although I have already created an appropriate trust account for the machine. Can anyone offer me any advice?

Have you tried it not using domain logon?"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."

By saying domain logons = no, Windows cannot find the domain controller at all.
