Someone within my company expressed the follow view:

> I was told that Unix servers running SAMBA can display NT passwords in
> clear text when they provide file sharing services for NT
> workstations.  Was a determination ever made if we allow this type of
> system to access the enterprise NT domain controllers?

Can someone clarify this statement.  Here is the [global] section from
by smb.conf file if that matters at all.  I'm running 2.0.6 on both
Solaris and HP-UX boxes.

        workgroup = DOMAIN
        security = SERVER
        password server = ntpdc1
        os level = 0
        wins server = ntwins1

Thanks alot!
