Ok, users(L) is going to be a subset of users(D)
This is easiest done with groups: create a group
of users(L), then one of users(D). Call them userl
In the smb.conf for L, put ``valid users = @userl''
in the appropriate place, either [global], [homes]
or the individual shares.
You will then need to make sure the groups files are
synchronized between the machines, probably with
a simple cron script.
There are other ways to do this, too...
