[Samba] Samba PDC policy problem: User policies work; computer policies don't.

I hope someone can shine some light here.

Per the docs, the ntconfig.pol file resides in the netlogon share, and it 
seems to work fine for any policies that pertain to a user or all users 
(Default user). But nothing I've tried has gotten policies for computers to 
work. Nothing that is set in the Default Computer policy has any effect at 
all. I have rebooted the Windows box I'm using for test after putting an 
updated ntconfig.pol in the netlogon share, but, again, only user changes 
have any effect.

There's a setting in the computer polices for remote policy update, but if 
that's where the system learns where to look, it seems like a standoff: until 
it finds the policy data, it can't know where to look! Or do I have that all 

Thanks in advance for any help,

Ray S.
