It's an AD DC, and my plan was to...

1. edit FILE_SERVER smb.conf and change
security = domain
workgroup = SAME_AS_PDC

2. net rpc join -S DOMPDC -UAdministrator%password

Yes, noted :)

But in theory sounds OK...?

All I want do is pass share authentication requests to the PDC. If there is another way to do that, then please shout.
