NTDOM: progress/bugs OFFTOPIC: news.

i'm off for a week.  i may be back mid-week, maybe later (11th feb or so). 
i'm now off numerous lists, including the samba one, but not the
samba-ntdom or cifs ones. 


1) printing looks like it's going to be a pain (see archives for previous
post, from today).  in the mean-time, you can't print from a samba NTDOM
server, so would have to put printers on a 1.9.18p2 server instead.  or
run two samba servers off the same physical machine, but off separate ip

2) there's a bug in the dce/rpc code (actually, it's unfinished and i
don't have time to fix it right now)  which means that responses greater
than about... 1 to 3k are garbage.  this will particularly hit large
NetShareEnum responses and "User Manager"  and "Server Manager" for
domains, with more than about... 4 to 8 users. 

3) some people on this list may be waiting to see if there is better
documentation available.  could those people who have successfully managed
to get up-and-running please help those who haven't?

4) paul (blackman) would you be so good as to see if putting a message at
the bottom of each posting saying "archives are at
http://samba.anu.edu.au/listproc" is easily possible, like the cifs list
does?  other people, please, if you are reading this, please check the
archives before posting on a particular issue:  your question may have
been answered already. 

have fun!
