That is all that I have in my smb.conf file.
A new info is that if I try:
nslookup <PDC> , the <PCD> hostname and IP are correctly returned
nmblookup -S <PDC> , I get the error message "name_query failed to find name FAIDHC01SDCG0402
Thanks for your reply.

Hi Ana,

You didn't include your entire smb.conf file - much is missing, so if 
you want help, you'll need to provide the whole thing...

Also, not sure if it matters, but why are you providing an IP address 
for the server string?

I am not planning to use winbind as the samba shares that I want to create are going to be used by ClearCase (Rational Configuration Management Tool). ClearCase requires local UNIX accounts and only supports USER or DOMAIN security modes.
