has anyone ever apply NT4 policies to an XP machine with samba as a PDC ????


hi there,

i've been trying to get my Samba PDC to apply NT4 policy but i just can't, i'm beginning to think that maybe it's all just a big joke, that it's impossible to apply NT4 policies to samba, because Iíve typed into Google everything i can think of to get a result and it's just come to the point were i've visited every site in Google for the first 4 pages, i've searched threw here with all the forums and anything that looked like it had to do with samba PDC i've read and so far i havenít been able to do it.

so i'm feeling pretty defeated, so if there is anyone out there that has managed to apply an NT4 policy to an XP machine with a samba PDC can you just let me know that it's not a joke at it can be done and any help you can offer would be immeasurable.

Have you tried the tips from the LQ.org Samba Wiki located here > http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Samba ? or here at Samba.org > http://us4.samba.org/samba/docs/man/...TO-Collection/ ?

after 44 views and 2 days of the linux community looking at this post and not a single person telling me that they have successfully apply NT4 policies to and XP machine using samba 3.0.10 PDC, i guess it just can't be done, so i've been looking into registry hacks maybe, from my understanding of policies it's just a series of registries changes so maybe if i just got together a whole bunch of registry changes and apply then with the login script? if anyone knows if that is possible or if someone else has already thought of this and has a site that tells me about it. or maybe apply the local .msc with different settings for each group. or something i'm just taking a swing in the dark at the moment cause i can't think of how to apply policies.
