Also, is it essential to have "auth methods = sam" for this kind of setup. currently using samba 3.0.14a. I am aware that it could be done on the client side by tweaking the registry to send ntlmv2 requests only. Any information on having a similar setup on the server side is what I am looking for.

Jeremy, I think it would be better to add something like:

minimum security = ntlmv2

defaults to the lowest one we think is acceptable (ntlm ?).
