I have successfully setup my samba server as a PDC.  I have logon scripts enabled and roaming profiles.  I installed the version that comes with Red Hat 6.1.  I login fine and can change passwords and have network drives mapped with login scripts.  I have two problems:

1) When I have user level security on the Windows 98 machine and I try to share something out. I try to add users and i get the message that it cant retrieve the user list. please try again later.

2) Everytime I try to use usermanager for domains i get a message saying REMOTE PROCEDURE CALL FAILED.. Correct me if I am wrong but the samba home page says that this works. Please help me out here.

Thanks much

Configuring samba as a PDC is only available the "developmental" code that will be the next release and is available now only via CVS. Recent CVS snapshots seem to work well and you can make WinNT systems members of the domain. I don't recall any errors from "User Manager", when used according to the Samba directions. You certainly will get the RPC error using the current stable version as it doesn't have PDC functionality.
