The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 2174
the default "use spnego = yes" is not good for WM2003SE

If I don't set the parameter "use spnego = no" in my server smb.conf, I can't

the message string.

trace, and logfiles.

PC. The client on pocket PC can't connect to the samba shares if "use spnego =
no" is not set.
I am not sure what that parameter does exactly but it seems to work only for
windows XP and windows 2000.
What all logs you need? I am hesitant to screw the working setup but I will try
to go back and fetch you some logs. Let me know which files are you interested in.
An ethereal sniff of the connection (showing the failed login) could tell us a lot.
I suspect I know what is going on here, and I *think* it is fixed in Samba4. If
you have a spare machine, and wish to confirm that, it would be interesting.
(Samba4 is far from production however, but we took the opportunity to get a few
