I was reading over the documentation online for using SAMBA as a PDC, and
in the section about creating machine trust accounts is talks about having
to add machine accounts to the /etc/passwd file. The text also mentions
that future versions of SAMBA will remove this requirement:
"Because Samba requires machine accounts to possess a UNIX uid from which
an Windows NT SID can be generated, all of these accounts must have an
entry in /etc/passwd and smbpasswd. Future releases will alleviate the need
to create /etc/passwd entries."
Since the text was last updated in July of 2001, and there have been
several releases of SAMBA since, is the /etc/passwd account for machine
trust accounts still required in 2.2.3a?
