Hello list.

My samba 3.0.4 server is member of an NT domain.
Now I want to use local unix accounts (on this server) as well as the domain 
accounts to authenticate users.

It works, if I use "smbclient -W <netbios name of the server>" but not when 
using win2k clients. The client's name is mapped to the domain name and as a 
result the sam backend doesn't even look at the password of the user.

I wonder, if this is allways the wanted behaviour. Am I missing a flag or 

Thanks in advance for any reply,
