This is a problem! :-)

But I discover if I register in the domain the samba server that I set 
in "netbios name" all the "netbios aliases" work right inside of the domain.

Is samba 3.0 secure to run in a production enviroment if I only use the 
same things that samba 2.2.x?

I discover too if you update "included" conf files samba does not reload 
automatically the new configuration. Is this a bug?

Other thing. I put several smb.conf.[servername] files included as:

include=/path/smb.conf.%L    (inside of the main smb.conf)

I can not put something as

netbios name = %L

because this does not run. I do not know if the problem is the 
secrets.tdb file (security = domain) or something else.
