do I need trust?

Hello all,

I'm trying to get samba to pull in the auth from an NT PDC using the web
page If I set
security=server I can get it to work i.e. smbpasswd -j domainname works.
However, using security=domain is supposed to create less traffic by not
keeping the sockets open. If I change security=domain then running smbpasswd
-j domainname pitches a fit:
cli_net_auth2: Error NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
cli_nt_setup_creds: auth2 challenge failed
modify_trust_password: unable to setup the PDC credentials to machine MYPDC.

It looks like a need to create a trust between the PDC and my samba client.
Is there any other way around this?
