Mr. Terpstra,
Are you saying that if I have a user account in ldap which is
responsible for admin, that it must be uid=root or that it must be
uidNumber=0? What about gid=root/gidNumber=0 for a group?  I have the
setup below and somethings do get done. Machines accounts are added
automatically and both Admin and root can authorize the joining of the
domain.  On a Mandrake system like mine the smbldap scripts belong to a
group named "adm" and uid=root belongs to this group also as well as to
the group "Domain Admins".

getent group shows:

[LDAP entries end here]

[root at enigma root]# net3 groupmap list
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-XXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX-513) -> netusers
Domain Computers (S-1-5-21-XXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX-515) -> machines
Domain Guests (S-1-5-21-XXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX-514) -> nogroup
Domain Admins (S-1-5-21-XXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX-512) -> root

I do have your book "The Official Samba 3 HOWTO and Reference Guide",
BTW.  Definitely worth the money but I sure wish I had more money. ;-)

The problem I am having though is that I cannot use the Windows Server
Manager or User Manager for Domains.  I can browse the information but I
cannot change it.  Any tips or references to relevant portions of the
book would help.
