Samba Fun, Resolved but...

Ok, so, installing the "winbind" package gets the WINS services working correctly (I feel slightly sheepish about this, since I must have installed this on the old image to get it to work...) AND the /var/run/samba directory errors seem to go away...

Adding "passdb expand explicit = no" to smb.conf makes the other error (about that switch, though default, being deprecated) go away...

Cool...

So, why doesn't the "Domain" field come up with "MCCSC" filled in automatically, now? It works fine on our old installs...

Although this particular strange behavior is simply annoying, it makes me wonder a) what other smb.conf options are being ignored? is this a symptom of a larger problem? or b) do I need to be changing a different setting elsewhere???
