I'm not entirely sure I understand. You want your users to be validated
against the UPVNET domain controller, right? How does COMOPT come into
then? Is COMOPT the domain root, and UPVNET a branch ( or subforest, or
whatever they call it )? From Samba's perspective, it shouldn't matter
the relationship: Point samba to UPVNET as the DC, and let the win2k
boxes work themselves out.
Please let me know if I got what you want wrong.
