[Samba] Domain trust between a Samba PDC domain and W2K AD domain

Hello Gaiseric,

Thank you for your answer.

My last experience in Windows server was on NT, therefore my knowledge 
on AD is rather limited. I however work with an AD admin who may answer 
to some questions.

He said the server with which the relation has to be set is in a 2003 
level forest with a 2003 R2 schema. He also made a reference to MS KB 
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/325874/ on establishing a trust relation 
between an NT server and 2003 server and this document does not 
explicitly state the Windows server must be set in mixed mode.

I checked both the Samba3 Official guide and Samba 3 how-to guides but 
it seems both of them are stuck to 3.0 version. Is there some more 
updated information regarding domains and AD interoperability in Samba ?

Many thanks
