Hi Henrik,

I just did a similar thing setting up an AIX file server with a Linux-based
Samba PDC.  I'm pretty sure you want to set the Linux file server up as a domain
member server:

You're right on with security=domain.  Then you just have to add the LDAP admin
stuff to the samba config and secrets database (i.e. smbpasswd -w [LDAP admin
passwd goes here], net rpc getsid [domain name here], net rpc join
-Uroot%[password goes here]) and a few other config steps outlined in the link I
put above...

Hopefully that gets you started int he right direction.
