And that is the question we spend our life answering... ;)
Couple of points
* You should enable password encryption on the Samba server.
* if you operating in a workgroup enivironment, the set the
Samba server to user level security and keep a normal list
of account in the smbpasswd file.
* if you are using a domain model, refer to the DOMAIN_MEMBER.txt
file that is in the docs/textdocs/ directory of the Samba
Also, here's a tag from NTDOMAIN.txt...
Please note that Samba 2.0 does not **officially** support
domain logons for Windows NT clients. Of course, domain logon
support for Windows 9x clients is complete and official. These
are two different issues.
Samba's capability to act as a Primary Domain Controller for
Windows NT domains is not advertised as it is not completed yet.
For more information regarding how to obtain the latest
development (HEAD branch) source code and what features are
available, please refer to the NT Domain FAQ on-line at the
Samba web site under the documentation page.
Hope this helps. Contact me one on one if you need more info.
