My situation is as you describe, 2003 server with win2kpro clients
connecting to samba AIX & linux servers joined with "net ads join".
I've been having so much success with this the last few weeks,
I was planning on deploying this to our core fileservers by Oct 10.
Now I'm rattled a bit.
Am I going to get bit by something I haven't yet seen
or have I gotten past whatever it is?
Or has my specific configuration put me in a niche?
If I can help by sharing my personal experience, please count me in.
Just let me know the level of detail that might be helpful.

Regards, Doug
