We are considering samba 3.0.1 as a replacement for our old-hag Windows 
NT4.0 Server PDC. However, we do want some policy control, and from the 
samba 3.0.0 documentation (23.3), it says the only current functional 
policy is the password expirey. Is this still true in samba 3.0.1?

Can an NT4.0 server be a backup domain controller to samba 3.0.1 PDC? That 
way we can keep the NT4 machine around and create the NTConfig.POL on that 
machine, and store it on the samba 3 PDC. Is that possible?

Is there any way that samba 3 PDC (NT4/2K/XP clients) can run a script on 
a client either during logon or logoff events? Or is this a policy thing?

Thanks in advance,
