Does pam_mount play nice with winbind ? *
If you're not already, it might be worth investigating samba's winbind to
create local users automatically for you when they first login to the linux
box. With winbind, you can set a pretty arbitrary template to use for the
autogenerated unix usernames - samba maintains a mapping db** between
uid/gid and nt domain rids (or is it sids...I don't want to remember)
The conventional template is to prepend the NT domain name to the NT
username, so that nt user mydomain\dgolden is unix username (all one string)
"mydomain+dgolden" or "mydomain\dgolden" with a home directory of
* if so then, great!, it's my problems solved for integrating my crop of
linux clients with an NT domain - my major remaining trouble was the lack
of user's "P: drive" NT pseudo-home directories...
** back this mapping db up!
