[Samba] Joining an AD domain where AD domain name != DNS domain name

Hi all,

I found a nice cheatsheet (http://blogs.sun.com/jurasek/) for setting up
Samba on my Solaris 10. Problem is, that document is pretty explicit about
the AD domain and DNS domain being the same. The problem with *that* is,
when we moved to AD, the AD domain (and therefore AD DNS domain) was
implemented as "company.corp" rather than our real DNS domain "company.com".

All my *nix boxes are in company.com, not company.corp. Is this a problem?
And is there a way around it? My preferred solution to to get rid of the
company.corp abomination, but that isn't going to happen.


Georgia: Why am I not doing what they're doing?
Rube: Because you're doing what you're doing. When it's time for you to do
something else you'll do that.
