Neither are PDCs Our PDC is a windows2000 box - with Novell e-directory. I am
simply trying to join as a member of the domain and authenticate to the win2k
box using domain level authentication.
The red-hat box joins and authenticates. The solaris box will join but cannot
use security = domain. And as already said - smb.conf, and lmhosts are
identical on both. And both are on the same subnet as each other and the PDC.
