The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 3947
login fails if username and workgroup/domain are equal
Last modified: 2006-07-19 07:01:41 UTC
If a user has a name which is equal to the name of the domain or workgroup he is rejected (another password prompt when using Windows). The Samba log says "User <username> not in 'valid users'". The problem seems to exist since 3.0.23.
