Is it possible to establish an interdomain trust between samba 
3.0.25c and Windows 2003 Active Directory in Windows 2003 native mode?
According to the howto Chapter 18, last phrase it is not: "It works 
with Samba-3 and NT4 domains, and also with Samba-3 and Windows 200x 
ADS in mixed mode ".

But Volcker Lendecke replied on a mail in the samba mailing list:

That's a wrong assumption. You can certainly use a trust in
native mode. The only thing you can not do anymore is
install an NT4 BDC into the domain that was converted to

So my question: what's the story on this? As for now I cannot make 
the trust work (samba as the trusting domain).
