I have 2 smb 3.0.14a domain controllers (pdc, bdc) with a openldap
The ldap databases are replicated.

I need to replace a NT4.0 files server with a dedian/linux box.
There are 5 usergroups with different rights so I need to
authenticate the user.
What is the best solution to authenticate the users in this case.
With the external ldap database or with winbind ? Or is there even
another option ?


Things you don't want your SysAdmin to say
-31. Hmm, maybe if I do this...
