I have a Windows 2000 SP4 (polish version) machine on VMware 3.5 and a
Samba 3.0.28a fileserver on linux box (kerenl Both are
members of Active Directory.
When I try to map a samba share, I get a message like this (may differ
from exact english message as I translated it from polish): "This folder
has been moved or deleted" or "unexpected network error has occured
59" (the later when using command line "net use x: \\FILESERV\SHARE").

Both machines see each other (I'm able to ping each other by domain
names), in logs I can see that user gets authenticated properly, from
windows machine side I can list all shares, but I'm unable to open any
(the above message shows up). All other Windows hosts on the network are
able to brownse the samba fileserver without any problem and on the
other hand the Win2000 virtual machine can access shares on other
machines on the network. The user I'm logged in is a member of domain
admins group.

Here is the smb.conf:

workgroup = <...>
passdb backend = smbpasswd
security = ads
encrypt passwords = yes
private dir = /etc/samba/private
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/private/smbpasswd
syslog = 3
syslog only = yes
log level = 3
lock directory = /var/lock
pid directory = /var/run
os level = 65
announce version = 5.2
announce as = NT Server
preferred master = no
wins support = yes
local master = no
winbind separator = +
disable spoolss = yes
smb ports = 139 445
max xmit = 65535
realm = <...>
server string = Serwer Plikow
password server =
idmap uid = 10000-50000
idmap gid = 10000-50000
inherit acls = yes
inherit owner = yes
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
template homedir = /ftp
template shell = /bin/false
unix charset = UTF-8
host msdfs = yes
msdfs root = yes
map system = no
map readonly = yes
map archive = yes
map hidden = no
interfaces =
bind interfaces only = yes
winbind use default domain = no
ldap admin dn =
ldap suffix =
ldap user suffix =
ldap group suffix =
ldap ssl =

all shares have th same definition (except for paths, eg. :

comment =
inherit permissions = yes
security mask = 0777
force security mode = 0
directory security mask = 0777
force directory security mode = 0
create mask = 755
read only = no
veto files = /.AppleDB/.AppleDouble/.bin/.AppleDesktop/Network
Trash Folder/:2eDS_Store/.Trash*/
admin users = @"<...>+domain admins" @"builtin+administrators"
@"<...>+Administratorzy domeny"

In logs I can't see anything indicating an error. However I managed to
capture transmission betweene stations - there a few repeating parts
that look strange - but I'm not good at decrypting it... I can mail it
if needed.

Thanks in advance.
