[Samba] Domain Help

Hello List,

My environment is Tru64 version 4.0f Unix.  The domain is Win 2k.

I am having 2  problems:

1)  # smbclient -L epicprod
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Got a positive name query response from ( )
Domain=[NMFF-NET] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.2.2]

        Sharename      Type      Comment
        ---------      ----      -------
        test           Disk      A test share
        epic           Disk      Epic Applications
        IPC$           IPC       IPC Service (epicprod)
        ADMIN$         Disk      IPC Service (epicprod)
        root           Disk      Home Directories

        Server               Comment
        ---------            -------
        EPICPROD             epicprod

        Workgroup            Master
        ---------            -------

The master showing from in the smbclient command does not show, or shows a
machine that is not actually a Domain Controller.

How can the Domain Controller be set?  I have tried manipulating the


   workgroup = nmff-net
   server string = epicprod
   log file = /usr/local/samba/var/log.%m
   max log size = 50
   name resolve order = wins DNS
   security = server
   password server =
   encrypt passwords = yes
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY
   local master = no
   wins server =
   admin users = tbrown
   preferred master = yes
   os level = 0

My next problem is when I do this from the DOS prompt:

net use z: \\epicprod\test


cacls <file_name>

I get:

<Account Domain not found>F
<Account Domain not found>R
Everyone: R

Is this indicating that the machine is not officially "registered" in the
domain.  What is the proper technique to register a machine in an Win2K

Thanks in advance,
