We use samba purely as for file serving from Solaris 7 or 8 servers.
PDC and BDCs are NT machines.  We have been using Samba 2.0.7, but used
2.2.5 for a new server.  One noticeable difference is that smbstatus
lists a
number of entries "IPC$         nobody   nobody" which we did not see in
2.0.7.  Is this normal in 2.2.5 or something I should be ivestigating?
