Paul Henson maintains a series of patches for doing DCE/DFS integration
with samba.  However, the latest supported version of samba appears to be
2.2.8.  Keep in mind that if you want to do encrypted passwords, you will
also need his sec_auth daemon that runs on the DCE security servers, and
provides support for getting DCE credentials using NTLM auth among other


If you really want to do samba 3 with MS kerb auth against a DFS to SMB
gateway, that will definitely require some new code in sec_auth, and an
updated patch to samba.  Perhaps someone more familiar with DCE/DFS would
care to comment?
