Well, a rather odd subject, but I couldn't really express it differently.
I would simply like to know if the active directory "emulation" of
samba+openLDAP+kerberos or samba 3.0 includes support for policies.
I have a bunch of XP clients that I need to set some restrictions on.
But it seems the days of config.pol files are over, so i need active
directory support on my PDC. Having read several articles on active
directory, I still don't understand it fully, but articles about setting
up active directory on a samba pdc mentioned only partial support for
active directory(only some features supported).
So before I start crashing our server with software and configuration, I
would like to know if (group)policies are supported by active directory
on samba. If this is the case, I'd also like to hear if anybody has a
working setup of it, and maybe some links (I couldn't finde any) to
More information about the samba
