Hi Amitay, thx.

that did the trick on the password age thing. (used git pull from today)

still got no userprincipalname (logon name)
but that might be obvious, since the previous domain
was NT4 style samba, and uses pre-2000 usernames.

also old netbios alias names are converted ok.
so i do get these names in the domain controller section,
but accessing them will not work.
i'll try to dig into it, this week.

but most important for me is the browsing/printing part.
can i use the s3compat part that is build with samba4 ?
and how do i do that, i've found the franky and s3compat page
of the samba wiki, but it looks like a lose end.

thx for the help.
