It appears that encrypted passwords must be in use for samba to be a PDC --
NT workstations can't recognize they are in the domain otherwise. However,
I want to use cleartext passwords to allow users to login on the workstation.
Is there a way for a samba server to have dual functionality --
authenticating workstations via encrypted passwords while allowing user
logins (from the same workstations) via cleartext passwords? My reading of
the mailing list archives indicate that this currently isn't possible,
hopefully I am wrong.
Could a feature like this be implemented in a future release?
