"domain logons" also controls NT logons. Can someone give me
a valid set of circumstances where you would want Samba to
validate win9x logons and not act as a BDC?
In my opinion (at the moment) the two are inseperable. A Samba
server (using accounts from a PDC) validating Win9x logons
should also validate NT client logons (and this is a BDC).
I feel like I'm speaking in a black hole here. Would someone
please tell me politely to either be quiet or at least address
the questions above. This is somewhat of a design issue I
