Hi Spedale, Can I suggest you speed up, overtake that slow, liable to
breakdown NT4 domain and use a Samba AD domain ?
I think you will find it easier than trying to get the NT4-style domain
working, plus you get the opportunity to manage it from windows via
ADUC, or from Linux via samba-tool.
Most of what you will learn by using the NT4 domain isn't used in an AD
domain, plus there is a lot you can do with an AD domain that you
cannot do with an NT4 domain, GPO's for instance.
The only problem that I can see, you are using Centos and, at the
present, you cannot set up an AD DC with the OS packages.
It is only a small problem, you could compile Samba yourself on Centos,
or change to another OS such as Debian and then use Louis Van
Belle's packages from here:
These are the most up-to-date free packages available at the present,
though no doubt Louis is working on later packages.
