Changes in Behavior

The following issues are known changes in behavior between Samba-2.2 and Samba-3 that may affect certain installations of Samba.

  1. When operating as a member of a Windows domain, Samba-2.2 would map any users authenticated by the remote DC to the “guest account” if a UID could not be obtained via the getpwnam() call. Samba-3 rejects the connection with the error message “NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE.” There is no current workaround to re-establish the Samba-2.2 behavior.

  2. When adding machines to a Samba-2.2 controlled domain, the “add user script” was used to create the UNIX identity of the machine trust account. Samba-3 introduces a new “add machine script” that must be specified for this purpose. Samba-3 will not fall back to using the “add user script” in the absence of an “add machine script”.
