Is it possible to configure Samba so that it could authenticate users
from the LDAP server *only* (i.e., operating system doesn't see the
users from LDAP).
I'm working on an embedded Samba domain controller, it is based on Linux
/ busybox / uClibc (and Samba with OpenLDAP).
The system doesn't use glibc, but it's smaller brother uClibc, and it
doesn't have anything like PAM or NSS.
Because of this, Samba can fetch the users from LDAP, but can't verify
that these users exist as system users - and refuses to logon with
Is there a way I can use Samba + LDAP without seeing LDAP users as
