Samba Basic Authentication

I have a windows 2000 active-directory native-mode domain.

I am trying to have the samba server authenticate users through their Windows accts. I.E. I have a user on windows. I don't want to have to duplicate logon information into linux.

I have my Samba server up and running to the point that if I make a user in the linux machine that I already have in the windows domain, the client windows machine doesn't ask for a logon.

Windows User Acct w/o a linux acct = ask for login
Windows User Acct w/ linux user acct = no request for login

my winbind can see the users in wbinfo and getent. But I am not able to map permissions with the windows users, and the client machines ask for a password.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I will post my smb.conf in a few mins

Thank you

This is my smb.conf file

netbios name = elmer
idmap uid = 10000-20000
idmap gid = 10000-20000
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
winbind nested groups = yes
workgroup = LOONEY
realm = LOONEY.COM
password server =
preferred master = no
encrypt passwords = yes
dns proxy = no
security = ADS
wins server =
wins proxy = no

writeable = yes
path = /samba/admin = = 2000 AD DC

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
