Hi sorry if this is the wrong place to post but I'm not sure where to
go to and I'm a bit desperate.

We just brought our Sunfire 6800 server and Storedge 9960 RAID array
Solaris 8 back up after some maintenance and everything came back up
'clean' but I cannot get our SAMBA software to recognise any users or
directories when logging in remotely from an apple or windows box.

Here's what I've tried already.

If I try and mount one of the direcotries on our apple boxes I get an
error message saying SAMBA alias could not be opened becasue the
original item could not be found.


If I try and modify a users password on the unix server I get
../smbpasswd abarnes
ldap_connect_system: Binding to ldap server as
"uid=admin,ou=Administrators,ou=TopologyManagement, o=NetscapeRoot"
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
ldap_connect_system: Binding to ldap server as
"uid=admin,ou=Administrators,ou=TopologyManagement, o=NetscapeRoot"
ldap_connect_system: Binding to ldap server as
"uid=admin,ou=Administrators,ou=TopologyManagement, o=NetscapeRoot"
No user to modify!
Password changed for user abarnes.
Failed to modify entry for user abarnes.
Failed to modify password entry for user abarnes


And if I try to verify a user password with ./smbclient -U abarnes -L
localhost I get
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

after I enter the password.

Here also is the smb.conf file

this is the entry in the log.samba file
