You answer addressed my concerns, thank you for your concern about this.

The answer is quite elaborate and I am in the process of studying and
discussing your statements. I am afraid I have to say that I do not see howto
fit in the new Samba server into LDAP centered solutions.

To my understanding the way it looks now is that you have to migrate all of
your applications to AD compatible solutions. What I want to have is a Samba
server that still authenticates to an LDAP server, then the Samba server works
seemlessly with the other processes.
