ok, i re compiled the beta2 version with ADS support.

I have a first issue : when starting winbindd, i saw this in the log file :
[2003/07/11 18:15:06, 0] nsswitch/winbindd_util.c:winbindd_param_init(383)
  winbindd: idmap uid range missing or invalid

I then added in the smb.conf

winbind uid = 10000-20000
winbind gid = 10000-20000
winbind separator = +

The testparm just said about possible problem with the "+" separator.

But in the log.client

[2003/07/11 18:19:51, 1] param/loadparm.c:lp_do_parameter(3106)
  WARNING: The "winbind uid" option is deprecated
[2003/07/11 18:19:51, 1] param/loadparm.c:lp_do_parameter(3106)
  WARNING: The "winbind gid" option is deprecated

I don't understant why in one case it complain about the missing range and
in the second, about its presence.

However, the main problem is that it display the samba server as a domain
controler in the microsoft mmc after joining the AD domain. Bellow is an
extract from my smb.conf

preferred master = No
local master = No
domain master = No

This is a big problem for me since active directory administrator doesn't
accept such behaviour.

Any idea is very welcome
