[Samba] smb.conf issue

My problem is like this ...

I have 2 users USERA and USERB. They both are authenticated by 2 different servers (PDC). USERA is authenticated by NAMD001 and USERB is authenticated by NYC020 servers. In this case, for me to provide Unix (slsnyd2 server) directory access, how should my smb.conf file look like ?. Currently I have the following. It is not working.

        workgroup = WWSS
        server string = slsnyd2
        security = SERVER
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        password server = namd001,nyc020

In the above configuration, only USERA has access to the Unix directories. Because once Samba finds NAMD001 responding, it never bothers to check NYC020.

I tried with security = DOMAIN. That doesnt work as well. In fact, both the users lose connection!.


Note: I am trying to connect to Unix directories from a Win 2000 machine.
