Unless I am mistaken, PAM is the combination passwd/group file
with a seperate smbpasswd file. From what you are saying, that's not
what you want.
LDAP is what I would focus on and only because you seem to already
have a working LDAP installation running.. If you are still in your
early stages with this server (If it is a Linux Server) you could give
it a reinstall, I know that during the (Expert) installation process of
several different distributions you are asked what kind of
authentication model you wish to use, I know that LDAP is one of the
choices and it might be easier to configure that during the install then
after the initial install of the OS. Believe me when I say this, I am
totally lost when it comes to LDAP Authentication.and the above is just
I am very far from an expert here, I am also not very familar with
I am mearly okay with a few areas of setting up Samba, nothing more.
