Constantly Losing Connections to Password Server

Why does server_validate() simply give up rather than re-establish its connection to the password server? Though I am not fluent in the SMB protocol, perhaps the cluster server process passes along to its client workstation the session key it receives from the password server, which means the password hashes submitted by the client would not work on a subsequent connection whose session key would be different. So server_validate() must give up.

Indeed. That's why security = server is at best a nasty hack. Please use security = domain; security = server mode is also known as pass-through authentication.
