Hi Craig,

Thanks, I'll think I'll research about option 2.

Best regards,

2 ways I know of...

1 - Heavily NOT recommended...use /etc/passwd file - that means ALL
windows machines must be taught (registry) not to use encryption and
smb.conf must be likewise configured not to use encryption.

2 - use ldap backend.

see http://samba.org/samba/docs/ for details
