It was time to upgrade our group server (new HDs, problems with old installation of DRBD, etc..).
Going as usually for CentOS i upgraded whole system from 6.3 to 6.4 The later one came with samba 3.6 as the old one was 3.5. I transferred most of users by copying /etc/password, /etc/shadow and samba accounts with pdbedit. Homes were on nfs-drive.
I'm running XBMCBuntu 12.10 on an HTPC with the server hostname 'SCREEN', and trying to setup Samba to allow access to a share called 'Movies' by mapping username/password credentials to a unix user account (I don't want to allow guest access.) The name of the user is 'user'. I am able to log into the samba server from my Windows 7 PC's via the UNC path \\192.168.1.103 or via \\SCREEN.
