Hi All:

I am a newbe in the samba. And I want to establish a samba as 
a PDC. But I meet some problems to do it. I wish somebody can
help me. Thanks in advance.

I get a file named samba_ntdom_faq.txt. I want to fellow the
step in that file to establish a samba PDC.

First I get the latest Samba Domain Controller source code
by execute some commands as follows:
    cvs -d :pserver:cvs at login
    when you are prompted for a password, enter 'cvs' without the quotes.
    cvs -d :pserver:cvs at co samba

Then, I get a directory named samba, and have src path in it.

Second, I run the src/configure
         and make
       and make install
The machine I used to run samba is a sun sparc, solaris 2.5.1 box.

But when I run /usr/local/samba/bin/smbd -D, I get the follows:

[1999/03/12 17:57:31, 1] smbd/server.c:main(604)

  ERROR: Samba cannot obtain PDC SID from PDC(s) . 

I don't know why domain password server not available?
What's wrong with me?

I really need you help.
Thanks in advance.
