[Samba] for Todd Johnson

I experienced a similar problem.  I know it sounds trivial... I used the 
version of Samba that came with the install CD of RHLinux 7.3, and got it 
running well.  Then I read about the bugs and so I upgraded to Samba 2.2.8a.

Afterwards, whenever I would make any changes to /etc/samba/smb.conf, I 
would not see any difference in Samba's behavior.  Then I ran testparm and 
I noticed that it was now using a different smb.conf, located in 
/usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf (!).  So I copied /etc/samba/smb.conf to the 
new location and replaced the original file with a link to the new 
location, because Webmin likes to edit it in /etc/samba, like I do.  :-)

Did you traverse the same path I took?

This is a small section of our networks smb.conf file. We are running 
2.2.8a with NIS and I want samba to emulate a PDC. I have ran down the 
Unofficial HowTO on this but still come up with this problem. The smb.conf 
file shows we want to use domain logins (domain logins = yes). The bottom 
file shows what testparms spits out in the log and domain logins = no in 
this case. Does anyone have any ideas where its picking up the no?
If the smb.conf file says domain logons = yes then why is it picking it up 
as domain logons = No?
