Hi all,

I'm building a Linux application server to replace 98% of the windows workstations in an enterprise. I'm using
Winbind to auth users logging into the server (through kdm/xdmcp) against the existing win2k AD PDC.

There are more than 50 different login scripts for the different users and groups. Because this company has
no in house Linux support I want to keep it as simple and easy as possible for their existing NT admin to
work with the new application server, and I want him to be able to admin the login scripts the same way he has always done.

The main thing that the login scripts are used for is mounting drives. So what I am thinking of doing is somehow downloading the login scripts when a user goes to log in, piping that through some fancy python and creating the
links to the relevant shares on the relevant servers on their KDE desktop. The thing that I am stuck on is how to retrieve the name of the login script that should be run when a user logs in. Since I cannot find any information on how to do this I am thinking of talking directly to the PDC's LDAP and retrieving the record from there. Unless of course you Samba gurus have already implemented a way to do this easily and painlessly ;)

Thanks in advance,

Tom Hibbert
