From what I can see it's defenetly not possible with samba 2.2 however
its ohhhhhh so close with 3.0 b3 (as my post said) domain users and
groups have moved happily and almost effortlessly, however I have hit an
empass with the machine$ accounts and until we can transfer those I
would say a move from NT to Samba on large domains isn't a real
possibility becouse going through several hundred machines to get the
machine trust accounts is just a wee bit to much effort... (luckily our
domain here is ittle)
