Handy tip for anyone on NT networks, to get PDC name to
to get a list of BDCs do
you still need to create local a/c's AFAIK for security=server, or at
least have force user= lines in the shares, in fact you do need local
a/c's of the same name (forgot I set up a system like this last year)...
As for the the dynamic creation of a/c's and stuff, I've looked into it
before, you would need an nss module (/etc/nsswitch.conf) to replace
passwd and group lookups (could query some service you run on NT domain
controller), then you need a pam authentication module like my one, and a
pam session module to create the home dir and call smbmount on it,
You still would need centralised uids I think (the service on NT would
have to take care of em ...)...
unfortuantly my time to work on samba got cut down a bit ... and I only
ever got as far as the auth module ..
