Please do not make 'pdbedit' call out to cli* functions. For one, then
you need to start adding all the authentication stuff. If we want to
manipulate domain trusts, that's fine - but it should be an offline
activity at least as far as CIFS is concerned. 'net' is the place for
If we are adding a new trust, I would really like to see 'net rpc join'
generalised, so that we can 'net rpc join TRUSTDOM', and just mark the
stored secret/joined account as such.
If we must add a trusted domain with a password (like NT4 does), then
simply modify code that might read that SID to behave the same way NT4
does - have a 'verify' codepath, and a 'we just don't have the SID yet'
