At the moment, samba can only imitate a NT style PDC not the 2000/2003 Domain controller. It can join and be a member server in the 2000/2003 environment.

You may want to check out samba-tng as it has cooler features, but at the expense of stability sometimes.

Here are links to setup a NT PDC emulator for samba.

On top of this thread, There's a SEARCH button, Click on it & search this forum for SAMBA PDC or SAMBA DOMAIN CONTROLLER.

You'll get a good amount of results.. Go through them & then place a more precise & relevant query.
