Hi there !

Yes I have. Samba works just as fine in native mode than it does in
mixed mode.
Have you got samba installed on an SGI server ?
If so, have you noticed some _strange_ behaviours ?

Let me know.

For security reasons the company I work for has to switch the win2000 installation from mixed mode to _NATIVE_ mode. Apparently (M$ sources say....), doing so it will not allow samba to work with Win2000 because samba advertises itself as beeing a NT4 xDC. Even though my Samba installation is NOT in any way a DC, could that compromize samba to work correctly ? Best Regards ""
