Description Marc Kaplan 2003-06-04 09:49:35 UTC
When the Guest account is enabled on a Windows2000 DC, domain members can log in 
like this net use * \\win2kdc\share1 /u:unknownuser "" and be squashed to guest. 
However, when the Samba server is a domain member, the net use above doesn't 
work, and instead a net use * \\sambadm\share1 /u:guest "" is required.

This is by design.  If you want

   net use * \\win2kdc\share1 /u:unknownuser "" 

to work.  Set "map to guest = bad user"

Closing this bug.

Not quite - the issue here (as I understand it) is that the DC is giving us a
login - but gives us the guest SID, and we don't cope with the fact that this
does not match the username the user started with.

IE, the DC should be able to do the squashing, not just the member server.  The
user should then become the domain guest, not the local guest.

It's not a showstopper for 3.0, by a long shot, but I will get around to looking
at it sometime...

obviously no one is going to get around to this.
