This is still not the place. Samba technical is not technical
support, it's technical development of Samba.

If you wan tto use the central accounts and passwords, you will need
to use winbind.

I have a long-term goal of removing the need for a 'security=ADS'
parameter, moving to more autodetection. This should help this kind
