SAMBA and Win2k  revisited

I'm having issues with SAMBA on a RedHat 7.2 and my win 2k machine.  I have the shares setup so that browsing works from the 2k machine, and I can read and copy everything from the SAMBA share to the windows box.  But when I copy a file from the wndows machine to the share I get this error on the windows box:

Sharing violation. File may be in use.

Or something like that.  I made that sure I'm not using the file on the windows machine and I can copy the file elswhere.  Also I checked the conf file for SAMBA and I made sure that read only is no, etc . . .

Thanks for your response, I ripped redhat off my machine and installed FreeBSD. And now it magically works.  There had to be something funky becuase I have the same configuration (RedHat7.2 + Samba 2.2.4) on a different machine and everything works.  One thing that is frustrating is that I can't get SAMBA to talk to my NT 4.0 Server PDC.  If I set the security to server or domain and point to my PDC, no logins can authenticate.  I guess this has do to NT encryption . . . Anyway on both my Linux and BSD boxes SAMBA only works if I set security = share, and keep the share wide open on my home network . . .  Any ideas?  Anyway you get the points fpr responding - thanks =)

You would have to create a computer account in the domain for it to be able to talk to the NT PDC. You can use the command smbpasswd to do this:

smbpasswd -j DOM -r DOMPDC -U AdministratorUserName

where:
   DOM is the name of the domain
   DOMPDC is the name of the PDC
   AdministratorUserName is the name of the user account that can add user to the domain.

Thanks I'll give that a try.  I considered the fact that I may have to add the pc to the domian, so I logged into my NT PDC but the SAMBA machine was already listed in server manager, Huh . . . anyway I'll romove the pre-existing server from the domain and add it the smbpasswd . . .
