Today I was told that we were going to to create an AD 'resource' domain, put all of the workstations in it and create a trust relationship between the two domains.  In other words the users would be in the Samba+OpenLDAP domain and the workstations in the AD 'resource' domain.  If it matters we have about 1750 workstations with about 2000 users.

It depends on the reasons for creating the resource domain.

It should work.  In fact, I think I even tested it briefly at my site.
It will just be an interdomain trust as far as Samba and AD are
