Samba Team,

I'm running a large Sun environment in which I have access to almost a
terabyte of SCSI attached storage. I would like to capitolize on this space
with as much diversity as I can. We have a primarly Win2K PC environment,
and I am interested in knowing if there is a method to have Samba offer up
file services with quota enforcement, without populating my sun machines
with machine logins.

Ideally I'd like to have the following environment.

Sun Server
Storage array
Samba w/ quota enforcement (preferrable from within AD)

Win2K Server
Active Directory
User Authentication

Win2K Workstations
Map to Sun Server via Samba.

Is this a doable architecture?
