Thanks for the reply Jerry.

Maybe I have a fundamental misunderstanding of something...

Is it possible to use ADS authentication for Samba share access
_without_ having to configure the system to also use ADS authentication
(via nsswitch, etc) as well?

In other words, I want Fedora server A to use just its local files for
system authentication (no winbind in nsswitch), but any Samba shares
exported by server A should authenticate its users against ADS.

Possible?  Should I be using security = domain instead?
