Running Samba 2.2.0 in a W2K environment. Samba is set to validate
passwords from our PDC (a W2K machine), etc. Normal shares work as
expected, but a few things are a bit weird, perhaps they are not
implemented in Samba 2.2.x?

o) Owner information (user and/or group) does not seem to map
to the W2K-domain. Does this mean that if I have a group named
"STAFF" in the W2K-domain and a user named "joe" in that group,
I need the identical group/user on the Samba machine for the
Windows explorer to show the appropriate owner?

o) If the above is the case, is there a reasonably simple way
to synchronize users and groups FROM the W2K machine to the
Samba machine so that the users only have to be maintained on
one machine?
