Hi David,

did you tested it meanwhile?

Under NT4-PDC and NT4-Workstation we use a lot of policies.
Next year we want to migrate to Samba-PDC and all (new) computers will
be W2K-Workstations.

So its definitely shure that W2K will not accept ntconfig.pol any more?
Do you know of any other possibility to get policies work with w2k
without AD ?
