Description of problem:
When authenticating against Windows 2003 SP1, there is a problem with LSAOPEN that doesn't occur with non-SP1 systems. This is fixed in Samba 3.0.14.

Specifically, this appears to be the patch for the problem against 3.0.13...

http://samba.org/~jerry/patches/post-3.0.13/winbindd_2k3sp1.patch



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
samba-common-3.0.10-1.4E

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup system-config-authentication to use winbind against a 2003 server (non-sp1)
2. Check authentication. Works.
3. Upgradet 2003 server to SP1
4. Check authentication. Doesn't work.
5. Remove SP1 from 2003 server.
6. Check authentication. Works again.

The temporary workaround for this is to set the following in the [global]
section of the smb.conf file:
  "client schannel = no"
This allows samba to fall back to an alternate crypto api and work with 2003sp1
Comment 10 Vince Worthington 2005-06-15 15:15:53 EDT
Will build a 3.0.10-1.4E-based Samba RPM for RHEL4 and try this patch out and
report back on how it works.  I have a Windows 2003 server here in my test
environ  so should be able to confirm if it works.  Will post an update here to
advise.

Comment 14 Tarun Reddy 2005-07-06 11:30:27 EDT
Work around provided by Marcin works. Also the FC4 samba RPM works without the
workaround (on FC4. Did not attempt to recompile for RHEL3/4)

Will we see an updated samba package for RHEL 4 (and possibly FC3 as well) in
the forseable future?
Comment 18 Matt Seitz 2005-09-28 12:33:53 EDT
I'm surprised to see that a fix was just released for RHEL 3, but not RHEL 4. 
Hopefully that will follow soon.

Comment 19 Matt Seitz 2005-09-28 12:49:30 EDT
I just found out there is a beta fix available on the RHEL 4 beta channel:
