Greetings ...

    Thanks again for your responce ... it currently feels like I am 
banding my head against a M$ Wall ...

    No, what I mean, if you enable "domain logons = yes", getent passwd 
does not return any users from the AD system, which means I can't have a 
remote Samba Server acting as PDC to host the netlogon service ...

    For the domain that is locale to the user ... Which would be a Samba 
server at a remote site ...

    I am not sure that is the problem, for a test, I have been able to 
Join a Win2K3 TS system to my lovely Samba domain and everything works 
fine.  No problem there.

    My real problem is a few $h!ty application which I have no control 
over.  iScala, a finance system which uses M$SQL2K, tied very closley 
into AD. And then Citrix or maybe TS ...

    I am currently tring to create a trust between Samba and AD domain 
so that users in my Samba domain have access to AD resources, which 
currently means access to iScala.  But I am still going to have to fine 
a way to get my remote Samba users to access Citrix via 
Pass-Through-Auth, but from what have seen, I might not have may options
