> is it possible to add a wind 2003 machine as BDC to a samba domain.
The Samba3-HOWTO, Chapter 5, contains the following:
Samba-3 cannot participate in true SAM replication and is therefore not
able to employ precisely the same protocols used by MS Windows NT4. A
Samba-3 BDC will not create SAM update delta files. It will not
interoperate with a PDC (NT4 or Samba) to synchronize the SAM from delta
files that are held by BDCs.
Samba-3 cannot function as a BDC to an MS Windows NT4 PDC, and Samba-3
cannot function correctly as a PDC to an MS Windows NT4 BDC. Both
Samba-3 and MS Windows NT4 can function as a BDC to its own type of PDC.
> Is documentation documentation available ?
Yes. You can start with:
The Official Samba 3.5.x HOWTO and Reference Guide
Samba3 By Example
Both come with the Samba packages, in HTML and PDF formats, or can be
viewed online at www.samba.org.
