You need the cvs version (to do it this way). It will not work with the
2.0.x versions (or didn't...).

In smb.conf :
   domain group map = /usr/local/samba/lib/

In the file :
	adm="Domain Admins"

In /etc/group :

Now anyone in the unix group 'adm' will have admininistrator rights when
they logon (using their own user name and password) to an NT that is a
member of the domain. In the case above only the last three names are
relevent, the others don't have valid smbpasswd entries.

Very easy.


to download the source and compile it but I still got the same results. I
have seen in many places you mention this is in the development code only
and the FAQ tells you were to find it. But in truth the FAQ doesn't tell
you exactly where to find it. Also in the book there is no mention of
needing a special version.
