Hi Tim,

I hope you can help me in clarifying my ideas.
I have read your howto in order to set Samba as Windows domain member.
I have exactly the same your configuration with DC used only for 
authentication purpose. All shares are on the Samba server and nothing 
apart authentication is provided by the DC.
The question is: clients partecipating to the domain (authenticated by 
the DC) must have the Microsoft Call License? That is, it is necessary 
for every client to have the licence required to connect to a Microsoft 
server even if it does not share anything?
