Hi All
I just installed samba 3.0 with the --with-netgroup-support option. I was
under the impression this would allow me to connect to my unix system using
NIS authentication.
I am using the unix system for just file sharing.  I think I am missing
something. Below is my smb.conf. I would appreciate any help you can give
me. Also the windows guys have implement active directory but I want the
users to authenticate using NIS.


# Global parameters
        workgroup = HEALTH
        server string = Solaris Samba Server 3.0
        security = SERVER
        password server = addc01
        max log size = 500
        name resolve order = host wins bcast
        preferred master = No
        local master = No
        domain master = No
        wins server = xxx.xxx.xx.xx
        ldap ssl = no
        hosts allow = xxx.xxx.

        path = /var/sowhat
        valid users = @sns
        guest ok = Yes

        path = /tmp
