we are moving our member servers ( windows ) to win2000 from NT4.0

right now samba is  memeber server in NT4.0 resource domain, but accounts
domain is AD.
so we have samba directing authentication to PDC in NT domain which again
gets info from  AD accounts DC.

Just wondering if i need to upgrade from 2.0.7 to 2.2.5 if PDC in NT
resource domain is being upgraded to Win2K DC.

so far 2.0.7 is pretty solid without any issues.

Now andrew, you know that 2.2.x can operate in a native
Win2k domain using NTLM.  :-)  Just not kerberos, which is 
what I know you were referring to.
