To whom it may concern,
I had originally sent the message below over a week ago. I haven't rec'd
any response other than that Trevor Rickards is on vacation until May 2.
Below is what I sent on April 23....
I've been investigating a problem configuring SAMBA 2.0.7 on Solaris
My basic questions boil down to:
* Does 2.0.7 support authentication against *multiple* domain
In the Server.conf file we see line items:
netbios name = SAMBA
workgroup = NT_DOMAIN
password server = NT_PDC, NT_BDC_1, NT_BDC_2
security = domain
To me, this indicates that 2.0.7 can only authenticate against a single
domain and the password server line is where the Primary Domain controller and any Backup Domain
Controllers can be listed.
Is this correct? There's been a bit of confusion over allowing
multiple server names being listed on the password server line being an
indication that 2.0.7 can support authentication against multiple domains.
Can you point me to any documentation making this clear?
* Which version does support authentication against *multiple* NT
I have heard that 2.2 does indeed support authentication against
multiple domains. I haven't been able to find any SAMBA documentation to
confirm or deny this.
Can you help me out?
