I have the current situation and am trying to figure out which way is
the best approach.
Our organization has two domains, REMOTE and LOCAL
REMOTE - remotely located Active Directory, Windows 2003
LOCAL - local Samba 3.0.x, Linux server
I have computer labs and students that would like to login to REMOTE and
also local accounts that need LOCAL.
There is no way to have a WinXP station belong to two domains. So...
If we moved everything onto the REMOTE domain, could Samba be setup with
tdbsam or LDAP and windbind to authenticate local accounts, with a local
home directory and local roaming profile while also allowing students to
login via windbind and connect to their remote home and profile?
I have tried this but have so far not had any success. I have a
Kerberos ticket and have joined the Samba machine to REMOTE. I can then
connect a WINXP station to remote and login. I can even set the home
directory in AD to the local Samba machine which works.
What doesn't work.
1) Local accounts - can't get Samba to authenticate a local account.
Are local accounts possible in this situation?

dirty word. It's time to run those who insist on using it out of the
