Forgive me if I don't understand all the NT/Windows terms.  We've just
migrated to Active Directory in "native mode" and all our our samba servers
stopped working (Samba 2.0.6), except for one SGI box that was at the newest
version of Samba ( 2.2.2 ).   We are using "security=domain" in our smb.conf
file.  As far as I can tell the one server at Samba 2.2.2 seems to be ok.

And please specify to the list, as I cannot by any means resolve these
issues.  I just had this sneaking suspicion that was what someone was
going to ask for.
