[Samba] W2K Domain Users in Samba

You will want to bring yourself up to speed on winbind I think. This is what
I use to allow Domain membership accounts to be added to my Samba shares. Is
your NT4 PDC a true Microsoft PDC machine? If so then winbind should work
fine, but I noticed you had Solaris beside your NT4 PDC listing so if that
is the case then I am not sure what you will need to do.

If it is a Windows NT4 PDC though, winbind will solve all your problems.

Looking for a poniter in the right direction

My current configuration is 
NT4 PDC (Solaris PCnetlink) 
Samba Member server (Solaris 9 Samba ver 3.0.20b)for file and print 
WinXp Pro Clients SP2

My problem is with the Domain Users. I am able to share out file systems 
to the XP clients from my Samba server OK. I am also able to modify the 
permissions for the files in the share in Solaris using the chmod, chgrp 
and chown. This seems to work OK. When I am on the WinXp client and I look 
at the security permissions tab on the folder properties that I own, I 
cannot see the NT4 Domain Users, all I see are the \\localmachine\user 
when what I want is the  \\domain\user. When I try to add a domain user in 
the secrutiy properties page I see the domain and the list of users but 
when I select a user or group and select add it does not add it to the 
folder properties. I am new to Samba -- am I missing some simple 
configuration parameter or is this how it is suppose to work.
