Re: multi-server/single source authenticaton was Re: [K12OSN] Networking a new school for K12LTSP?

Whoops, of course! Thanks, so as far as AD was concerned the samba domain would be just another domain in the forest. Would group policies work on both domains?

Windows machines can authenticate against a samba domain, which in turn
stores its user/password database in LDAP.   You've probably seen that
scenario called samba/ldap here.

The opposite approach is also possible.  You can use smb authentication
on the Linux side against a windows domain.  This isn't quite as slick
as winbindd because you have to create the linux accounts yourself but
it avoids the problems of getting random uids and you don't have to
manage a separate password.
