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.
