Asunto: Re: [Samba] Question about Authentication

I think that user groups defined on the PDC are Domain "wide" Groups, while
groups defined on others Sambas acting as server are local. This include
local group of Windows machines.

I know how to manages Permisions on win NT/2k shares to setup permisions
based on Domain Users and Groups, but no on how to manage ACLs on Sambas
servers. May be you need win_bind to make the server see the PDC's users
and groups as their own.

It also helps a lot running a new kernel with ACLs and Extended Attributes
enabled over a filesystem capable of that.

Good luck, Gus
