Thanks to a sample smb.conf from Johan Hedin I've now got NT domain
logons on our Samba server.
In case anyone comes across the following message from NT (translated
from the german) whilst trying to connect the NT wks to the Samba
Could not update internal security. Could not add MACHINE to DOMAIN
The problem arose because I had got the domain sid wrong. I had
domain sid = 1-5-21-111-222-333-444
domain sid = S-1-5-21-111-222-333-444
ie. I forgot the S- at the beginning of the sid.
It might be worthwhile to put this in the FAQ. I don't know how many
other people made the same mistake.
