I have still no idea about what to do with problem described below.

I have confirmed this with another Fedora 12 installation. It was new
clean system and I only yum-installed samba and set up remote password

Is there any easy way to see from Windows side what information system
gets from user account? Some kind on full-dump or query-all utility,
something little easier than tcpdumping whole net traffic.

Subject: Win7: Older user accounts works

I got very strange behavior:

Server A has local passwords (made with smbpasswd -a) and it also use password
from other server:

security = server
password server = b.domain.example
passdb backend = tdbsam

With OLDER user accounts everything works. With WIN-XP everything works. With
CMD-PROMPT everything works. With LOCAL PASSWORDS everything works. With
PERMISSIONS TO GROUP everything works.

I can map home directory to drive letter (say, O:). When I doubleclick it, it
says "access denied", if I use newer user account, use Win7, use passwords from
remote server, and home directory has permissions only for user. At same time I
can open cmd-prompt and say "dir o:" and it works.

If permissions are like this

drwx------ 8 majahu majahu 4096 2010-02-18 13:06 /home/majahu

I got access denied, but it works if they are

drwxrwx--- 8 majahu majahu 4096 2010-02-18 13:06 /home/majahu

So what is going on? There is exact combination of 5 things that makes this bug

There must be something wrong with newer user accounts. I have confirmed 3
working account and 3 not working; it might be that older accounts have been
made with older smbpasswd-file and later converted to .tdb. I have tdbdumped
passwords.tdb, but have no idea what to look for.
