the domain controller is linux/samba.... so when the nt server logs into the
domain as myself i cant perform nt user mgr for domains.  i get a rpc error.
i am using the version of samba that came with redhat 6.1.  i am desperately
trying to get this stuff to work.  win2000 has arrived and the boss is
favoring it...i dont want us to fall into microsoft's clutch any more than
we already are...

i created the domain admins group acct and added a user administrator.. the
nt server in ? still wont let me modify services on that box...

Normally adding a domain user account to the group Domain Admins is
sufficient.  You may want to check the settings for the user right
"Log on locally"; I don't recall what the defaults for NT server are.
Make sure also that DOMAIN\Domain Admins is in the
NTSERVER\Administrators local group on the server in question.  It is
by default, but perhaps it was changed by one of your admins.

Er, when Luke gets tired of breaking it?  ;-)
