Hi everybody,

I have a dilemma here about the user accounts.

We have all the accounts at a NIS server. My samba PDC is another machine
(different from the NIS server). What are my options for managing the

1) Central management (LDAP)
2) Keep different password files (passwd/smbpasswd)

Are there any different options??

If I use the second option (2 - keep different password files), can I sync
the passwords from Unix to Samba and vice versa?
