I am running a Samba server (2.2.8a).
I have successfully joined the domain and everything worked fine.
About one week after joining the domain , the samba server starts
logging thse lines : (but filesharing still works)

[2003/06/13 11:05:17, 0]
  2003/06/13 11:05:17 : change_trust_account_password: Failed to change
password for domain MYDOMAIN.

Lines like these appear in all /var/log/samba/log.*  files
I don't understand what this means
Anyone ?



1. Swat fails to start smbd when click "start" or "restart" - SOLUTION

Has anyone else come across a problem where Swat fails to start smbd
when you click "start" or "restart"? Pressing "stop" works fine, but
then pressing start, or pressing restart first of all, just leaves smbd
"not running".

And while writing this message I've discovered the solution :-)

I'll post this anyway, in case anyone else finds the problem and looks
on dejanews (as I did).

I did a strings swat | less and then searched for smbd - it came up with
%s/smbd, with the line before /usr/bin. I took a leap of faith and did
ln -s /usr/sbin/smbd /usr/bin/smbd, and everything started working

Amazing what writing about a problem to someone else can do, huh? :)
