I have setup a Samba server with CentOS 5.2 and Samba 3.0.28-1.el5_2.1 (the
CentOS included versión).

I have configured Samba as a PDC following "Samba-3 by example" chapter 3,
"Secure Office Networking". No DNS or DHCP active, as far as for now this is
just a test environment.

Most of it works fine, but trying to change user passwords for a MS-Windows
test computer (USRMGR.EXE from SRVTOOLS), has proved to be a nightmare. I
always get an Access Denied (Aceso denegado) error message. Connection from
MS-Windows computer is done as "Administrator" (root).

Make sure that the usrmgr.exe and srvtools.exe are located on a Samba share
and not on the workstation.
