Hey guys got a weird situation. First thing I am running Sol8 on an ultra 5 
running samba-2.2.2, nt box running windows 2000 server service pack2.  I 
decided to use the nt authentication to samba shares. So i added the samba 
server to the domain.  Here is my smb.conf:

# Global parameters
        workgroup = SYS
        netbios name = nsmx1
        server string = Hater...Samba %v on (%L)
        security = DOMAIN
        domain logons = yes
        password server = nspdc2
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        map to guest = Bad Password
        log level = 3
        log file = /var/log/samba.log.%m
        max log size = 50
        lm announce = True
        preferred master = False
        local master = No
        domain master = False

        browseable = No
        writeable = Yes

        comment = Solaris Ports
        path = /opt/local/src
        guest ok = Yes
        volume = Solaris Ports

I used smbpasswd -j SYS -r nspdc2 -U administrator, prompted me for passwd, 
entered it and it successfully joined the domain. Now i ahve verified that 
when I log into my nt domain with a diff account I am able to get to the 
shares, meaning that the nt auth to samba is working.  Now the problem is 
when i goto srvmgr I choose view all and it show my WIndows NT5.1 Primary 
then I see the samba server listed as NSMX1 Windows NT 4.5 BACKUP.  If i 
choose to view just workstations thier is a differnt entry for that same 
samba server excpet it says in lower case letter nsmx1 and it says Windowes 
NT workstation or Server, but this one is not lit up meaning that it is 
offline but the other one listed as BACKUP is lit up.  I dont understand why 
this is happening.  Seems like it is listing it as a BDC. right?  I believe 
it is sapposed to come up as workstation or server.  Somthing is obviously 
wrong.  Can someone please help.  Thanks alot for your time
