    Samba authentication


    I have Samba 2.2 running on a Suse 8.1 box.

    I have just built a 9.1 client and want to use Samba authentication. It all set up very nicely in YAST (saw the domain and joined the domain) but I cannot log in. Domain users are not appearing at the logon prompt and, if I try to type user name and password, I get no success.

    I am convinced this is a problem on the client side as we have a number of other clients authenticating correctly - Win XP, Win NT4 and Xandros.

    Help please

    Code:
    $ smbclient //hostname/sharename -U networkusername
    You need to supply user password when prompted.

    Code:
    # mount.smb //hostname/sharename /mountpoint -o username=user
    PS: user is the network user name

    I can't get that to work but, even if I could, would that not just create a mountpoint for a local user to a Samba share?

    What I want to do is have the list of domain users appear in KDM and, when logged on, to have their shares automatically mounted.

    This works fine with Windoze clients and mapped drives and also on my Xandros client.

    Thanks for your help so far

    KDM is the login manager - the list of domain users should appear along with local users

    It gets worse

    For some reason I cannot log on from the command line anymore - not sure what I have changed in order that that doesn't work anymore. I cannot see the domain through Samba Client in YAST any longer. I have done a YAST Online Update and I saw there was a fix fr the libsmbclient.....I was sure this would cure all ills but, you've guessedit, no success.
