Re: [Samba] Authentication issues with Samba 4.3.8

Hi Rowland/All,

I have tried upgrading our Samba from 3.0.28 to 4.3.8.  I didn't wanted to remove my old working version, so I just stopped my samba service and installed new version.

I have overwritten the new smb.conf with our existing smb.conf and tried restarting with the new startup scripts.

4.3.8 is having three startup scripts smbd, nmbd, winbindd and I tried restarting all of them.

Here comes the issue, when tried to connect it was giving me the login prompt but it's not accepting the valid credentials.  Below are the logs for the steps I followed.

  check_ntlm_password:  Authentication for user [ChunduruK] -> [ChunduruK] FAILED with error NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

Then I stopped the 4.3.8 samba and then uninstalled it and started samba with the old startup's scripts and same config file. This time it works like a champ.

  X.X.X.X (X.X.X.X) connect to service tmp initially as user chundurk (uid=222, gid=1) (pid 22544550)

I'm not sure if I need to install or change any of the settings.

As far as I am aware, there isn't a patch for the 4.3.x versions.
The only supported versions of Samba are 4.4.x, 4.5.x and 4.6.x and there are patches available for these, see here:
