I am planning a Samba3+LDAP installation and was wondering about the use
of putting users into different containers on the LDAP server (similar to
what people do on NDS/eDirectory).
Is it possible to then assign rights, options, ... to the containers and
have the users inherit these rights ?
I observed that e.g. SuSE Enterprise server and other SuSE products put
all users in the same context, thereby using the LDAP only as a better
Having worked a lot in a Novell environment I of course got used to the
convenience of assigning rights to containers.
Is there currently any support for this in Samba ?
Is there something planned to facilitate this feature ? I guess it will
also have to go with the host file system ...
Any input appreciated,
