I'm about ready to smash my head through a wall...I could use a few answers.
1. When using security = ads, and completing net ads join, it was my
understanding that samba authenticated username/pword against ads, and
local posix accounts were nolonger needed, is this true?
2. If yes, I have not been able to get it to work. If I have a posix
user account with the same name as one in ADS, even if pwords are
different, I can log on to the samba server. If no identical posix/ADS
account exists on the samba server, then I cannot connect. Any ideas as
to where to look would be very helpful, as I am at a complete as to what
to do at this point.
