I am trying to establish a common login using AD 2003 domain controller and a linux file server. I have set up samba and winbind and krb5 for authentication. I can join the Linux server to the AD domain. I have placed the recommended changes into the various pam files including mkhomedir.so.

I am using centos 5.2 with samba 3.0.28 and server 2003 R2
My problem is that when I log onto an XP client on the AD domain then browse to the linux file server I can see the home directory but when I try to open it up i get an error dialog stating

"\\server\test\ is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found."

In my linux log file I see the following entries at the same time.

I have trolled through many forums and FAQ's but cannot see any solution there - any help from an expert greatly appreciated.
