i've had samba and NT doamins working fine with the samba-2.0.3 rpm from
the redhat-5.2 kernel 2.2 updates.
you need the encrypt passwords setting, you need to know the ip/netbios
name of the PDC. and you need to either create an account on the unix
machine for every domain account, or set the adduser option to a proper
script and users will be added automagically.
should work fine with the code that's in samba. you don't need the
(and make sure to set domain logon's to off and os level to something
low. or chaos will reign)
eg a snippet from smb.conf:
# Global parameters
workgroup = MYDOMAIN
server string = Easy Server
security = DOMAIN
encrypt passwords = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
password server = ....
add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -c samba_user -e 03/05/99 -f
1 -g smbusers -n %u
os level = 16
domain logons = no
local master = no
this worked fine for me with NT4sp4 PDC.
