Created attachment 33 [details]
smb.conf file for domain member server

Note: The problem is present on the Domain Contoller also.

Code is current CVS as of June 21, 2003, MDT 01:00am
Comment 2 John H Terpstra (mail address dead( 2003-06-21 16:30:48 UTC
I have checked the code. It is failing due to the RID or SID net being specified.
My in goodness name is it necessary to specify this? This will bite us!

Surely this would make more sense if:

a) Where a SID or RID is not specified that it gets that from the default domain
name (workgroup) in smb.conf

b) Where a -S or -w option is provided that we obtain the SID from that machine
or domain

Can someone look at this please. This is simple thing to fix.

It's not a segfault, and it's behaving as documetented, so lower these
severities back to reality....

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
