Where is the script located ? Netlogon ?

What is it supposed to do ?

AD (Windows or Samba) uses SIDs, so a Windows user should see all users 
and groups, but only on a Windows computer.

It's a bit different on a Unix domain member, Samba makes domain users 
and groups into Unix ones, but not all of them.

I hope you can see from that it depends on where the script is run and 
how, if it will work.

A bit more info will help ;-)


Yes, the script is in Netlogon.  It maps a bunch of shares to drive letters and remaps local user folders to folders on the server.  Even though the script doesn't seem to run for all users I can still get to the shares on the network.  
How would I go about creating or managing users with this Samba setup under Windows.  Is that possible?
