Thanks for the reply Paul, i'm not using LDAP.

net getlocalsid gives me:
SID for DOMAIN PRAIASERVER S-1-5-21-1916702674-2089629516-631066457

I don't no if this is correct but in my smb.conf i have:
netbios name = PRAIASERVER

shouldn't the net getlocalsid retrieve the SID for DOMAIN REMAXPRAIA ??


What should i do to correct this (really don't know what's next...)
