Hi Viken,
That's true - The Win2k terminal services does not accept this registry
hack.  This has been brought up to MS several times, but so far I don't
think it is 'in plan' for them to change this.
Sorry, but you're not alone!

Subject: Samba version 2.0.7 and Win 2000 Terminal Server

I am experiencing a problem with Samba 2.0.7 and Windows 2000 Terminal
Due to the fact that Samba spawns one server process per client's IP
address, users on the terminal server shares the same process on the
Samba-server.  This fact is causing me problems.  I want each user to have
its own process.  I have looked around, and found that a registry setting
the terminal Server would fix this problem.


I did this, but still all users shares the same process on the Samba
Server.  I have read somewhere that the above settings only would help if
the terminal
server was running NT 4.0.

If anyone could help me with this one, I would be thankful.

Best regards
Olav Viken
