Thanks for that information.
So, now if I am to include Winbind, I would like to know what other
system libraries (Linux based) winbind uses. The deciding factor now
would be on how easy or tough it would be to get these libraries running
on some thing like VxWorks.
As far as I remember, in the 2.2.x series, if Samba was configured with
security = DOMAIN, then smbd would connect to the password server / PDC
and get the user authenticated.
Is there any way I can configure the 3.x series to do this ?!!
Even if I can get a small hint, pointing to the code I need to touch
upon, I can take it up from there. I have seen this kind of a code in
the auth_domain.c file. But I'm not sure how to configure Samba, with
security set to ADS, to get to use this mechanism.
Would really appreciate it if some one could help me out on this.
Thanks and Regards,

1.) Yes you definitly need the winbind/nss stuff, as it is the part of
samba that does what you want: ask an ADS server to verify the
credentials a user supplys when logging in to samba.
2.) no, it is not sufficient. But you need a working Kerberos library to
get winbind to work. Christoph
