My testing is going surprisingly well, and the full branch can be seen

the samba process. As well as matching my proposed deployment pattern,
it allows testing by simply changing the smb.conf configuration or
More broadly with this and the other patches I've sent or in the link
above, the passdb_samba_dsdb module is doing the hard work in the merged
winbindd, providing access to the users and groups, and most critically
to the idmap database.
Currently we run the source3 RPC servers, not the source4 servers as the
code to use the RPC pipes does not appear to be being invoked from

do have does pass, and I would be very interested in seeing how this
works for others.
