Let's say I have a shared file system between the systems where nmbd and
winbindd is running, and I'm using virtual IPs so the source IP of the
request from winbindd is the same as the IP of the nmbd, It seems
possible to have the nmbd write the packets to unexpected.tdb and then
have winbindd use that file as if it was local.
Any reason (beyond the virtual IP stuff, which I guess I'll have to
check out and see whether I can hack enough) why this shouldn't work ?
