I'm currently using tdbsam - and I hve my trusty Official Samba-3 guide
by the hand.
I've now tried to add the machine to my linux box without the $ in the
end of the name - and then adding the $ to my /etc/passwd file as well
as adding my machine and my windows user to my Samba pass db, and it
gets me a little further. (I think ..)
While trying to add my windows xp machine to the domain, I now get an
"access denied" instead of "user not found" error. Looking through the
logs have given me no clue whatsoever.
Any ideas to share, out there? :o)
