Samba config for windows server

Hi all,

I'm using solaris 10 with latest patches applied. I'm using samba to make a directory called /dir1 available from a windows 2003 server.

If I do a 'Map network drive' on win 2003 server, I get the error:
The specified network is no longer available

In the samba-log under /var/adm/, I get the error:
auth/auth_server.c:100(server_cryptkey) password server not available

If I do a 'Map network drive' on win 7 (my laptop), here I'm able to see the share /dir1.

Please suggest what may be causing the issue...

My smb.conf file is as follows:

workgroup = testw1
server string = Samba Server
log file = /var/adm/samba_log.%m
security = SHARE
comment = BO
path = /dir1
force user = dir1usr
force group = gd1
read only = No
guest ok = Yes

Issue got resolved.
Security settings under Local Policy Settings were causing this problem. I undid the settings and then tested. It was successful.
