This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Im already solved this task. Maybe someone will be interest how to do it: 1) install cygwin on windows and enable sshd there; 2)from ssh create user (net user /add) – Valintinr Jun 27 '12 at 12:08

If your Samba install is in the same AD domain as the Server 2008 user, you can get around having to install cygwin. The command to do this is:

net ads user add username password

This will create a new AD user which then can be assigned access on the 2008 server.
