Dear all,

I have a running Windows2000 Domain in Native mode.
Is there a possibility to let Samba join this domain ?

Right now I get following message when I try to join the DOMAIN
with SAMBA 2.0.7:


antares:/etc # smbpasswd -j ISECH -r dc100
doing parameter log file = /var/log/samba_isech/%m.log
pm_process() returned Yes
