I just installed Samba for VMS (1.9.17p4) on a DecServer 1000A running VMS

The University Network is primarily NT Server 4.0 SP5.  My experience is
with Netware and NT, not with VMS, but I have the luck of supporting the

My main question is about Encrypted Passwords.....Does this release of Samba
support them, or do I have to modify the clients who want access to our
Alpha to support un-encrypted passwords for now?  If this release does not
support encrypted passwords....any time from for version 2.x for VMS?

My second question involves the setup error message I received...

 The time zone logical SYS$TIME_ZONERULE (or POSIX$DEFAULT_TZ) 
 have not been set. One of them must be defined to reflect     
 your time zone and daylight saving begin and end times.       
 See file TIME_ZONERULE.TXT for the correct format of          
 this logical.                                                 

However....I can't find TIME_ZONERULE.TXT anywhere......

I also had some questions about setting up the Shares.....Group access
specifically....But that can always wait.

Here is a copy of my SMB.CONF file....Please let me know if I made any
glaring errors....

BTW:  I did try to search the FAQ and previous postings to the list....Sorry
if these are duplicate questions.
