The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 283
SP4 on Win2k doesn't allow user list to Samba standalone server.

Install SP4 on a W2K box - map a drive onto a standalone Samba
server. Bring up properties on a file, then click on security
followed by add. You get a request for a username/password to
see the user list.
This is a change since SP2. It's opening the LSA_DS pipe and
not falling back correctly. This is a show-stopper for Samba 3.
This is a win2k SP4 bug. You can't get a list of objects
(users and gpoups) in the folowing cases:
* 2ksp4 -> 2ksp3 (workgroup mode)
* 2ksp3 -> nt4sp6a (workgroup)
* 2ksp3 -> 2ksp4 (standalone)
Nor can I mount a drive from an XPsp1 box to either a
2ksp3 or sp4 host. The authentication never succeeds.
There is no real solution to this. The workaround is to connect to
the Samba server using an \\ip.add.re.ss\share and use DOMAIN\user
when prompted for a password. This seems to be the old "conflicting
set of credentials" problem back from the days of NT 3.51.
