It is in the current plans to support external authentication with 
OpenVMS CIFS instead of Advanced Server.

The exact method is still to be determined, as alternative 
implementations are being looked at, including using LDAP to communicate 
with an active directory server.  Such a implementation may not even 
require OpenVMS CIFS to be installed.

Has anyone tried configuring the Pathworks EXTAUTH module to reference a 
SAMBA based domain controller?
