This is an answer you gave to someone who wanted to know about Win2k
connectivity with SAMBA 2.07:
"2.0.7 will work with win2k as clients, but not as PDC. The upcoming
2.2.0 release will allow win2k prof clients to logon to a samba PDC.
regards, Michael "
What I like to know (I'm hoping you know al lot about this) if there are any
known problems with connecting a Win2k Server to samba shares.
I'm currently running a pilot-project at the Nyenrode University in Holland,
where I've got a Win2K Citrix Metaframe Server (in Workgroup NETWORK)
connected to a SAMBA 2.06 running on LINUX (PDC of domain
NETWORK). In the initial tests al went well, but some testusers are
complaining about missing mappings at random. Sometimes when working
they get disconnected drives.
15 testusers are created localy on the Win2K/Citrix Server with the same
usernames ans password as on the SAMBA PDC.
A logon.bat script is activated when someone connects to the Win2K/Citrix
Server and the mappings are made (at least they should!) like this:
net use g: \\Merlot\homes (Merlot is a SAMBA server)
net use h: \\Merlot\apps
when in a Citrix-session al mappings by hand are made correctly. Only
when mappings are made automaticly things tent to go wrong. After loggon,
and starting the Explorer it's waiting up to 1,5 minutes before al drive
mappings are shown (about 6)
1. Is there an explaination/solution to this behaviour?
2. Is the 2.07 version a better version than the 2.06 regarding to Win2k
Hope you or anyone else can help,
