[Samba] Samba 2.2.8-1 as W2k Member server

	It does that because Samba is using its own internal smbpasswd
file. While you may have been able to get Samba 2.2.8-1 connected to the
Windows 2000 Domain, it will not replicate the SAM data

	Run this test; create a Linux user account, then create a Samba
User account of the same name. (The Linux User account is required to
create the Samba user account.) Once you have done that, attempt to
connect to the server using Windows Explorer or whatever. (Make sure
that you create a user account/password combo that exists in your
Windows 2000 AD.) If all goes well, that user account should connect
perfectly fine.

	I believe that they are working on figuring out how to get Samba
to replicate the SAM data. However, that is still some time off, I

	At this time, I know that you can setup a Samba PDC and another
Samba server to act as a Samba Back-up Domain Controller, as we have
that configuration working fine in our office.

I have a problem with setting up Samba as a AD member server.

Linux tux 2.2.20-idepci (Debian Woody)
samba                       2.2.8-1.woody
samba-common                2.2.8-1.woody
smbclient                   2.2.8-1.woody
(samba from people.samba.org/~peloy/samba)

        printer driver file = /etc/samba/printers.def
        encrypt passwords = true
        character set = ISO8859-15
        kernel oplocks = No
        invalid users = root
        password server = de-mail, plains
        interfaces = xx.xx.xx.xx/
        security = domain
        server string = PDF-Test
        workgroup = xx_xxxx
        log level = 3
        local master = No   
        client code page = 850
        netbios name = tux
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m
        guest account = nobody
        os level = 2

   path = /shr
   browseable = yes
   writeable = yes
   guest ok = yes
   force user = nobody

        comment = PDF Printer
        path = /var/tmp
        create mask = 0600
        guest ok = yes
        printable = Yes
;       browseable = No
        print command = /usr/bin/printpdf.sh %s %U
        lpq command =
        lprm command =
        printer driver = HP C LaserJet 4500-PS
        printer driver location = \\%h\printer$

        path = /etc/samba/printdrivers
        guest ok = yes
        read only = yes
        printable = yes

I have created a machine acount in active directory named tux (as the
netbios name in smb.conf) and made it pre W2k compatible.
Aftrewards, I stopped samba and used:

Smbpasswd -j xx_xxxxx -r de-mail -U administrator

With the active directory administrator domain and received a message,
the domain has been joined.

I see the node in network neighbourhood, but I can't access it. It
askes for a username/password combination.

Any help is really appriciated.
