[Samba] login as a service to win2k & domain user manager

Under NT, you could do it through User Manager for Domains. You would select
the user and pull down the Policy menu and select User Rights. Then after
checking view advanced privleges, you could add "Logon as batch Job" ...very
useful for Oracle and other overnight import/export jobs.

In Windows 2000, logon as batch job is assigned from the 'Local Security
Policy' folder.
Open the Control Panel from the Start menu
Open 'Administrative Tools'
Open 'Local Security Policy'
Open 'Local Policies'
Open 'User Rights Assignment'
Right-click 'Log on as batch job' from the list. Click the 'Add' button;
select the User who is to be granted this privilege. Click Add and click OK.

I have never tried this with Samba, but I've had to mess with this feature a
lot lately... Oracle requires it for import/export.
