I am attempting to configure a Samba server to allow access to a service (Oracle) running on a windows server. At one point I have tested this and it worked without an issue so I didn't backup my conf file (grrr). Now I have been fighting with it and nothing I try will work.
I have my windows service setup to login as a domain user and I am logged into the server as that user and can connect to the samba server without it prompting me for a password; however when I run my service is gets a Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.

I upgraded to Samba v3.3.8-0.52.el5_5.2 and was able to finally get some useful logs, however no matter what I do I can not get a user to map and correctly authenticate.

I have setup mappings in my
root = administrator admin Administrator [NATRONA]\[Administrator] [RMAN]\[Administrator] nobody = guest pcguest smbguest
And I think I have my share configured correctly:
[recovery] comment = Recovery Catalog Data writeable = yes public = yes guest only = no valid users = oracle,root,[NATRONA]\[Administrator]@[NATRONA17]
Obviously there is a mismatch between the username that the Windows server is sending and the mapping on the samba server, I even tried
guest only = yes to attempt to force guest and it did not work.
Some Samba guru please point me in the correct direction. path = /db/recovery
