Samba (running on IRIX) appears to have lost its access to the domain
contraoller for authentication purposes.

The error message on the domain controller is:

"session setup from the computer mcssan failed to authenticate"

the following error occurred when he tried to do a "kinit
administrator@nmcs" on the Samba server:

"kinit(v5): kdc reply did not match expectations while getting initial
credentials"

This has been working fine for over a year.

Yesterday we started seeing the following errors and the Windows systems
are unable to connect to the Domain:

san1 160# ./net ads join -U administrator@NMCS
administrator@NMCS's password: [2008/07/09 09:15:08, 0]
libads/kerberos.c145)
kerberos_kinit_password administrator@NMCS failed: KDC reply did not
match expectations
[2008/07/09 09:15:08, 0] utils/net_ads.c191)
ads_connect: KDC reply did not match expectations
san1 161#

Any ideas as to the problem and what needs to be done to correct it is
appreciated.

thanks
