significant, no. however do not take the following as "permanent":
to be removed completely:
to be replaced with something equivalent:
domain admin users
domain guest users
have "domain hosts allow" and "domain hosts deny" been removed already? i
think, jeremy, you took these out three or so months ago.
basically, we will need a set of parameters that allows either:
- a mapping from unix users and unix groups to nt users, nt domain groups
and nt alias groups.
- a system specifying to use nt users, groups and aliases in some other
(yet to be defined) manner. this to most likely be used in conjunction
with a "samba-as-a-dedicated-black-box" server, suitable for use by
companies such as whistle and cobalt micros.
