Winbind - functionality extension needed&

Wed Jul 8 17:36:04 GMT 2009

will it be, or is it, possible to add the rfc2307 schema attributes extension to SAMBA 4's AD back-end so that a SAMBA 3 server can join a SAMBA 4 AD server and do these lookups from there?  Meaning, SAMBA 3 can be joined to Windows 2003 R2 so that the UIDs/GIDs are stored in AD for POSIX resolution with nss-ldap and would like to know if this is possible with SAMBA 4 instead of Windows 2003?  We do not use winbind and opted to use OpenLDAP for keeping all of the UIDs/GIDs the same over multiple SAMBA servers (version 2).  I have tested SAMBA 3 joined to Windows 2003 AD but, naturally, would like to use SAMBA 4's AD to keep this POSIX information, as well as nss-ldap so that the UID and GID information is the same everywhere.  OpenLDAP with MS schema and POSIX schema possibly?
