I may have overlooked an easy answer to this one ( or may be caused by a
lack of understanding of the big picture ), but here goes...
After examining some netmon traces between
NT4 Wks <-> NT4 PDC
NT4 Wks <-> Samba PDC
NT5 Beta1 Wks <-> NT4 PDC
NT5 Beta1 Wks <-> Samba PDC
I noticed a couple of things that I hope someone can explain. Although
all noticed communication negotiated the "NT LM 0.12" protocol as would
be expected, the Wks <-> NT4 PDC communications used the NT_CREATE_ANDX
command to open \lsarpc on the server during joining the domain while
the Wks <-> Samba PDC trace showed the use of OPEN_ANDX to open
Can anyone explain why the difference? Does it matter? I have searched
the latest CIFS draft and the previous frames in the netmon traces but
didn't see anything that would show a distinction between the NT PDC and
the Samba PDC.
More questions ( and hopefully solutions as well ) later.
