NT4-Style Domain Trusts with Windows 2000
Although Domain User Manager is not present in Windows 2000, it is
also possible to establish an NT4-style trust relationship with a Windows 2000 domain
controller running in mixed mode as the trusting server. It should also be possible for
Samba to trust a Windows 2000 server; however, more testing is still needed in this area.
creating the interdomain trust account on the Samba server
as described previously, open Active Directory Domains and Trusts on the AD
controller of the domain whose resources you wish Samba users to have access to. Remember that since NT4-style
trusts are not transitive, if you want your users to have access to multiple mixed-mode domains in your AD
forest, you will need to repeat this process for each of those domains. With Active Directory
domains and trusts open, right-click on the name of the Active Directory domain that will trust
our Samba domain and choose , then click on the
Trusts tab. In the upper part of the panel, you will see a list box labeled
Domains trusted by this domain: and an Add... button next to it.
Press this button and, just as with NT4, you will be prompted for the trusted domain name and the relationship
and after a moment, Active Directory will respond with
The trusted domain has been added and the trust has been verified. Your
Samba users can now be granted access to resources in the AD domain.
