citrix stores addition information into SAM on pdc

we want to replace our nt4 pdc/bdc with samba and we use windows nt4 terminal servers with citrix in our environment.
as far as i know, we will get a problem here. (extensiver reading of the mailing list led me to this conclusion)
>Terminal Server has its own User Manager (which has an extra button -
>"Config" on the User Properties dialog box) which read/writes additional
>information in the SAM that is not used by standard NT4 servers. This extra
>information relates to the users configuration in the terminal server
>environment. Such things as -
>Allow Logon to Terminal Server
>Timeout settings for connection, disconnection & idle.
>Action to take on broken or timd-out connections
>Whether shadowing is enabled
>Whether to connect client printers and drives
>I don't think that Samba (in any of its incarnations) support this extended
>SAM functionality, so you'll need to use Windows NT Servers as your NT
if this has not already been adressed (has it?) we sure get problems with those citrix settings. we use the session shadowing
feature and after migrating to samba, i`m somewhat sure things will mess up, because the information wether shadowing is enabled or
not cannot be stored on samba pdc.
citrix is very popular and citrix serverfarms usually NEED a domaincontroller "by design" - so i wonder that this hasn`t already
can someone give me information on this and confirm that this still IS an issue ?
if someone is willing to resolve this issue please feel free to contact me. i can probably supply necessary information (network
tcpdumps....registry "access logs"....doing testing....whatever....)
please contact me via mail, because i`m not subscribed to this list.
while writing this mail i did some further search in the ML archive, so i`m happy to see, that i`m not alone :)
