(Doc ID 1919408.1)

Last updated on JULY 29, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 to 10 1/13 U11 [Release 10.0]
Solaris Cluster - Version 3.0 to 3.3U1 5/11 [Release 3.0 to 3.3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Solaris Cluster for HA-Samba would fail due to a smbclient login failure with a  NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE error

$ /usr/bin/smbclient
Version 3.6.12
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

The /var/adm/messages file would record messages containing

Date hostname SC[SUNWscsmb.samba.probe]:nas-rg:samba-res: [ID 182069 daemon.error] check_smbd - Samba server <hostname> not working, failed to connect to samba-resource <share_name>

The error message gave the indication that the cause was the same as the post Patch installation failure discussed in Knowledge Document 1319431.1. The /usr/sbin/smbd processes were running. Further investigation lead to the smbclient failure being the cause.


 Solaris Samba Patch 119757-27 and later was installed that updated Samba and its smbclient application to version 3.6.23
