Set security = domain (read the documentation about it).
Before you need to create the windows accounts. You have 2 choices:
- Do it yourself: Create 1 linux account for each windows account. Set
the password to something (it is not matter because this password is
never used by samba).
- Let to winbind create the accounts for you.
Each methods has good and bad things.
