Group policies alter the registry of Windows workstations and member
servers.  They don't interact with the Samba registry.

Not in Samba 3 (don't know about 4).  Samba 3 implements an NT4 domain;
the windows workstations and member servers look for a file with a
specific name in the netlogon share on the domain controller.  You can't
change that basic behaviour (I think you can change the name of the file
that the client looks for, via a registry setting) and you can't serve
files directly out of the Samba registry.


It is impolite to tell a man who is carrying you on his shoulders that
his head smells.
