Unable to authenticate to CIFS on OES2SP3 server using a user alias.
Have a user object and an alias to that object in the same container. With NetWare 6.5 SP8, able to authenticate with CIFS using either object, but with OES2SP3 server, only the real user object can successfully authenticate.

For example, authenticating as a 'real' user object to OES2SP3 CIFS:

Code:
sled11:~> smbclient -U MyUserName-Real -I=172.16.40.120 //OPS-SHARE_W/VOL1
Enter MyUserName-Real's password: 
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[SUSE LINUX 10.1] Server=[SUSE LINUX 10.1]
smb: \>
This succeeds, nothing logged in cifs.log

Authenticating using an alias object (which is aliased to the real object used above):

Code:
sled11:~> smbclient -U MyUserName-Alias -I=172.16.40.120 //OPS-SHARE_W/VOL1
Enter MyUserName-Alias's password: 
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
And cifs.log shows:

Code:

For comparison purposes, tried the same command as above, but entered an invalid password. Got the same NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE as expected, and the cifs.log shows:

Code:
Aug 15 15:31:13 ops-share CIFS[31368]: WARNING: AUTH: Authentication failed due to password mismatch for user cn=MyUserName-Alias.ou=OrgU,o=Org, Err :-1642

Using the alias object to access the NetWare CIFS works just fine:

Code:
sled11:~> smbclient -U MyUserName-Alias -I=172.16.41.185 //ops-backup1-w/vol1
Enter MyUserName-Alias's password: 
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[NetWare 6.5] Server=[NetWare 6.5]
smb: \>
...and that's the behavior we need on OES2/Linux.
Is this a configuration problem, a bug, or WAD ?

Thanks,
Mike
