This isn't technically a samba question, but I figure there will be 
other samba users out there in the same boat.

I have just setup the first Vista box on our samba domain and I am 
having some trouble with policies (they don't get applied).

I have had a look around and there is alot of talk about the adm->admx 
change, etc but I haven't seen anyone say that anything needs to change 
in NTConfig.POL. Infact, there has been relatively little mention of 
NTConfig at all. Does Vista still support NT4 style policies?

If not, what have others done to work around this? I guess I could push 
out .reg files through login scripts but I believe that might trigger 
UAC, any other suggestions?
