Thank you very much sir, this is precisely what I need.

It is worth noting that the smb.conf(5) man page have the following to
say regarding this directive :

    "This option only takes effect when the security option is set to
server or domain."

This is incorrect, as I am running with "security = ads", and it
apparently do the right thing.  I'll try to contact the maintainer of
this man page on the subject.

Thanks again !
