I'm using Redhat 9 how do I make samba simulate domain controller ???? Its already set up on the network sharing folders and users are able to copy files to it and from with usernames and passwords using mapped drives.

Try setting the following options in smb.conf then restart samba:
local master = yes
os level = 65
domain master = yes
preferred master = yes
domain logons = yes


There are also options to run login scripts etc - for a full list of options in smb.conf run:
man smb.conf

Hey there, BD22. For a more detailed answer to your question, take a look at the Samba HOWTO Collection. It gives details about getting things set up, including Samba passwords, how to join a domain, and all that fun stuff. It's a bit of an ordeal if you've never done it before, but I'm a Linux newbie myself, and it only took me a few hours.
