I have come to that conclusion too.
mh is my account. This account is present in the NT domain, in
/etc/passwd and smbpasswd. asback is the user that should do the
printing in production service; this account currently is only present
in the NT domain. I have thought that the whole concept of integrating
a samba box into an NT domain is about not having to enter every NT
account into /etc/passwd manually.

How do I do that?
