I can't seem to get an answer to this question...
Should I use winbind if my Domain Controller is a samba machine? Or is
it only useful if my DC is a real MS DC and I have other unix/linux
I'm strictly wanting to provide file and domain logon services to
Win2000 machines via a samba DC. There are no other DC's involved.
After reading the 3.0 HowTo on winbind all I see are references to
winbind helping linux/unix resolve usernames from a Windows DC. If I'm
using a linux/samba box as the DC I don't need this for my win2000
users, in a domain on the Samba DC, to gain access to shares, right?
Would winbind help me in any other way in trying to use ACL's?
