Samba cannot authenticate against 2003 ADS. pdb_init_sam failed!
Posted on 2005-04-07
I'm trying to get Samba to connect to a 2003 Server ADS. I have successfully joined the computer to the domain by doing a "net ads join" and can see users with "wbinfo -u". I can authenticate correctly using kinit.
However, whenever I try to connect from a XP client I get
System error 1326 has occurred.
Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.
on the client and
[2005/04/07 13:52:06, 1] smbd/sesssetup.c:reply_spnego_kerberos(250)
Username DDS\aclient$ is invalid on this system

make_server_info_info3: pdb_init_sam failed!
in the server log, where "aclient" is the client machine name.
I'm using 2003 Server with SP2 & all hotfixes & the standard build of Samba &winbind from Centos-4 (AKA RHEL 4).
