Dear, I've seen an implementation where the Windows desktops belong to
"Company.com" domain and the Samba server was a stand-alone server
with workgroup = "SALES", and Windows clients access to Samba
I mean here the Samba's workgroup is different from Windows' domain,
so is this implementation ok ???
