I would prefer it was all Samba (cifs/smbfs).

I was pretty sure that S4 didn't update SFU/RFC2307 on dynamic
allocation. I was just wondering if there was any S3 idmap backend that
could get the data out of the S4 ldap or some other method. Right now I
think the linux test setup I have was doing idmap_hash. This would be
great if I was only using linux.

I am guessing you are saying that there currently is no ldap or other
backend that can be setup to work with the S4 way of doing things.

Thank you,

P.S. I am going to look at the GPO problem you were helping me with
today or tomorrow. The last week, I have been under the weather.
