server string = Redhat Samba Server
security = SERVER
password server =
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
dns proxy = No

ldap ssl = no
idmap uid = 16777216-33554431
idmap gid = 16777216-33554431
hosts allow = 192.168.4.
cups options = raw

I am getting authentication issue, and getting this error in my samba log file

password server rejected the password

Please help me resolving this issue.

Dear rmuhammadali,

try change this
security = SERVER to security = user or domain

and check if you have this line also

encrypt passwords = yes
