[Samba] Change Allowed Workstations with pdbedit

Dear Samba Users,


I have a Samba 3.2.5 Server running on Debian. I use tdbsam as a password
database and wonder how I can change the "Workstations" value in order to
control the allowed workstations for a particular user. Last year I had a
configuration with ldap using the smbldap tools where it was possible to set
this value. But how can I set it without  LDAP just using pdbedit?

In the official Samba 3.2.x HOWTO and Reference Guide in Chapter 11 Section
"The pdbedit Tool"
ditthing) there is an example where "Workstations" is set to "melbelle" -
but no explanation of how this could be done. There is also no parameter
listed in the pdbedit man page.


Any hints?
