        unix password sync = Yes
        syslog = 0
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 1000

        domain admin group = root @wheel
        add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g 100 -s
/bin/false -M %u
        logon script = logonscript.bat
        logon path = ""
        logon home = ""
        domain logons = Yes
        os level = 64
