We are attempting to authenticate against a Windows Server 2003 Active
Directory Server and getting a preauthentication failure (preauth is
enc-timestamp). We're using a key that we generated from the password
and stored into a keytab; this works against a Win2K AD server but not
against a 2003 server.
Did the string-to-key algorithm change in Win 2003? (Or does it use a
different mechanism for generating the salt?)
Any info (or pointers to info) on this would be appreciated.
