Hi Friends,

I am using samba version 3.0.2a.

I want to get some domain information from AD server (2003 server) using
my Linux box. I am using "net -d 3 rpc info -S" command to
get that info.

There are 2 cases:-


1)       If I am enabling NULL session support on AD server then it
works fine (gives me enough information of domain).


2)       If I am disabling NULL session support of AD server then it
gives following error.


[root at buildbox root]# net -d 3 rpc info -S

  return code = 1



I am expecting that "net rpc info" command should return domain
information without enabling NULL session support of AD server (2003

Could someone please tell me whether it is possible after doing some
winbind configuration or any other changes in samba?
