    Samba Domains


    I am trying to use Samba as a M$ Windows Domain controller, and I am curious if you can map the logons for the Domain to a local *nix login, like NIS+ does. I want to be able to login to my Linux box with the same settings as my Domain account. Can someone help me?

    don't think you can map domain log in's to a local log in.
