Services for Unix

I just installed Services for Unix on a Windows 2003 DC. I have a Debian box with Samba shares for our storage drive. I'm trying to test a Linux client.

She is unable to read or write from the Samba shares. Her login is being mapped to the same name from NIS to AD. She can login from a windows machine and read/write to the shares, and she can also ssh into the samba server and write files in the shared directories.

findsmb - list info about machines that respond to SMB name queries on a subnet SYNOPSIS
findsmb [subnet broadcast address] DESCRIPTION
This perl script is part of the samba(7) suite. findsmb is a perl script that prints out several pieces of information about machines on a subnet that respond to SMB name query requests. It uses nmblookup(1) and smbclient(1) to obtain this information. OPTIONS
-r Controls whether findsmb takes bugs in Windows95 into account when trying to find a Netbios name registered of the remote machine. This option is disabled by default because it is specific to Windows 95 and Windows 95 machines only. If set, nmblookup(1) will be called with -B option. subnet broadcast address Without this option, findsmb will probe the subnet of the machine where findsmb(1) is run. This value is passed to nmblookup(1) as part of the -B option. EXAMPLES
The output of findsmb lists the following information for all machines that respond to the initial nmblookup for any name: IP address, NetBIOS name, Workgroup name, operating system, and SMB server version. There will be a '+' in front of the workgroup name for machines that are local master browsers for that workgroup. There will be an '*' in front of the workgroup name for machines that are the domain master browser for that workgroup. Machines that are running Windows for Workgroups, Windows 95 or Windows 98 will not show any information about the operating system or server version. The command with -r option must be run on a system without nmbd(8) running. If nmbd is running on the system, you will only get the IP address and the DNS name of the machine. To get proper responses from Windows 95 and Windows 98 machines, the command must be run as root and with -r option on a machine without nmbd running. For example, running findsmb without -r option set would yield output similar to the following IP ADDR NETBIOS NAME WORKGROUP/OS/VERSION --------------------------------------------------------------------- MINESET-TEST1 [DMVENGR] LINUXBOX *[MYGROUP] [Unix] [Samba 2.0.6] HERBNT2 [HERB-NT] GANDALF [MVENGR] [Unix] [Samba 2.0.5a for IRIX] SAUNA [WORKGROUP] [Unix] [Samba 1.9.18p10] FROGSTAR [ENGR] [Unix] [Samba 2.0.0 for IRIX] HERBDHCP1 +[HERB] SCNT2 +[MVENGR] [Windows NT 4.0] [NT LAN Manager 4.0] FROGSTAR-PC [MVENGR] [Windows 5.0] [Windows 2000 LAN Manager] HERBNT1 *[HERB-NT] [Windows NT 4.0] [NT LAN Manager 4.0] VERSION
