[root@pcqserver samba]# smbd -V
I have an existing windows 2003 server running in my office network which acts as an PDC.It provides login authentication to all winxp, win2000 and win98 clients within our network.
Now i want to replace the win2003 PDC server with an samba PDC server wherein all clients can join the domain of samba PDC.
The win2003 server name is SERVER and has domain name as "vvlaps" .I have made the following entries in my smb.conf file but when i try to make windows client join my Samba domain with the root as domain administrator it does not allows me to do so.The windows client names are accounts and umesh.
I have also changed the windows registry for winxp clients as required by Samba. The files smb.conf,smbpasswd,/etc/passwd are as follows.
***Does the Domain names of both the PDC servers have to differ in order to make clients join the Samba Domain??
