This is just a nightmare.... and I have to do this on a live working box
where all the win9x clients are DOMAIN logging on fine at the moment.
I just have no idea really what to do all the explanations are just
getting more and more confusing... sorry Rob:-)
Look my win9x clients during boot up have 3 boxes to fill in:
Domain is already pre-filled in with the word HINWICK
But samba is not configured as a PDC yet, but they are logging on fine
because smb.conf:workgroup = HINWICK and smb.conf:security = user
If I change smb.conf:workgroup = HINWICK to smb.conf:workgroup = HINDOM
does that not mean the win9x clients will no longer logon because they
have HINWICK in the domain box?
Why could they just have had smb.conf:domain = HINDOM so workgroup
stayed the same setting?
Anyway back to trying to get this to all happen, assuming I have
machines accounts automatically being created and assuming smbpasswd
file is setup correctly I am still confused about the DOMAIN WORKGROUP
If you answer yes to this it will be ok: Did MS make a mistake by
putting the word DOMAIN on the logon screen for win9x clients, should it
have been WORKGROUP?
Also I have not the resource for another box to be setup just to test
this, it has to be done without the win9x clients needing reconfiguring
(apart from the encrypt password setting), there must be no disruption
to them logging on, I just need to get the other MS OS's to start
Here is my current smb.conf, if someone can post back an alteration to
allow XP/w2k/NT machines to logon I would be grateful.
