I have been able to create a trust relationship between my tng samba pdc
box and my nt pdc box, with samba as the trusted and nt as the trusting.
I did this by creating a machine account in samba using the -i option,
with the name of the trusting domain, and a machine account in samba with
the name of the nt pdc machine. I then used user manager for domains on
the nt pdc to create the trust using the password I gave to the trust
account on the samba pdc. This seems to have worked. Now I want to go the
other way, and I'm a little lost. I have 'permitted the samba pdc to
trust' on the nt pdc, and from what I've gleaned, this should create an
inter-domain-trust account on the nt pdc with a machine name equal to
my samba pdc domain. This is where I get stuck. How do I actually create
the trust on the samba pdc? What is the significance of the 'trusted
domains' and 'trusting domains' values in smb.conf? I noticed when I moved
to CVS 2.5 GOOD that if I included the 'trusted domains' lines that most
of the daemons would not start properly. It's okay to include the
'trusting domain' line however. Thanks for ANY help or info.
