Hi everyone

After a bit of ln -s'ing in /lib and /security/lib I managed to get s4 
and winbind working. Thanks to the details here:

1. How can I have a home folder that I choose, not one which winbind 

I'd like to have home folders such as

but with winbind the only possibility seems to be:

Maybe somehow have a share for each of the folders staff builders and 

2. getent group does not list secondary group members (as nss-ldapd 
does) Would it be possible to include this?lient,

3. When I logon using a linux client under winbind, is that also being 
server by s3fs? (I guess the answer must be yes since I had the nfs 
server turned off for the winbind tests).
