You mean NT SMB calls ? As samba is annoucing NT RPC calls since day one
of PDC support. Or I missed something

Before replying, I checked myself with:
	An NT4 SP1 workstation,
	A samba PDC server checked out on July 10 or so, which doesn't
have the NT SMB calls but have the spoolss support (my dev server)

I tried to change my password from the Ctrl|alt|del windows and it was
unsuccessful. I didn't try from a dos box with a net user command. Anybody
tried ?
