Windows 2003 use Samba user database

Hi, I have been looking for information on how to make a Windows 2003 server use the user database of an existing Samba installation.

What I want is to use the Win3K as a (second) file server allowing users (using Win2K & Win XP computers) to access its shares using their existing user name/password and, of course, maintaining only one user database.

Is this possible at all?

So far I have joined the Windows 2003 computer to the domain controlled by the Samba computer.

However, I cannot connect to any Win3K share using user name/passwords already defined in Samba.

I cannot login to the Win3K via Remote Desktop Connection (I get a message stating that members of the Remote Desktop Users group have this right). So I tried by adding a user from domain to this group (Win3k accepted this) but the result is the same (including the message).

Your help is appreciated.

Juan

NAME
locktest - Find differences in locking between two SMB servers SYNOPSIS
locktest {//server1/share1} {//server2/share2} [-U user%pass] [-U user%pass] [-s seed] [-o numops] [-a] [-O] [-E] [-Z] [-R range] [-B base] [-M min] DESCRIPTION
locktest is a utility for detecting differences in behaviour in locking between SMB servers. It will run a random set of locking operations against //server1/share1 and then the same random set against //server2/share2 and display the differences in the responses it gets. This utility is used by the Samba team to find differences in behaviour between Samba and Windows servers. OPTIONS
-U user%pass Specify the user and password to use when logging on on the shares. This parameter can be specified twice (once for the first server, once for the second). -s seed Seed the random number generator with the specified value. -o numops Set the number of operations to perform. -a Print the operations that are performed. -A Backtrack to find minimal number of operations required to make the response to a certain call differ. -O Enable oplocks. -u Hide unlock fails. -E enable exact error code checking -Z enable the zero/zero lock -R range set lock range -B base set lock base -M min set min lock length -k Use kerberos VERSION
This man page is correct for version 4.0 of the Samba suite. SEE ALSO
Samba AUTHOR
This utility is part of the Samba[1] suite, which is developed by the global Samba Team[2]. locktest was written by Andrew Tridgell. This manpage was written by Jelmer Vernooij. NOTES
