Why do you have this set to yes? Set it to 'no'. Yes tells samba that
you would like to act as a domain controller. This doesn't have
anything to do with the NT domain controller code per say. In fact, by
using a precompiled version of 1.9.18p1 I would wager to say that the NT
domain controller support ( what is there ) was not turned on.
BTW...The NT Domain code is being devleloped in a separate branch that
the standard releases. The split started at 1.9.18alpha11 i think.
