Logon to a Windows 2000 domain


I'm running a Windows 2000 server at work. Now I would like to add a SuSE 7.3 fileserver to the network. How can I make it logon to the domain?

smbpasswd -j <DOMAIN> -U <user> <password>

That will allow your samba server to join the network. Bear in mind that it'll basically be like running a hybrid NT4 server as Win2K services haven't been fully duplicated in SAMBA.

Ok, I got that working.

But now I would like to synchronize the users on the Windows 2000 server with my Linux fileserver. So that the users also exist on the linux server.

In the global option put password server = <PDC Name>. This make samba authenticate through the PDC.

Goto to I have a very simple smb.conf file posted. I used it to share files when I had my win2000 server running at home.
