This should not be the case.

I need this only to provide access to Sharepoint, provided by a AD environment.

In other words, I want AD to trust Samba4.

Or, perhaps I don't even have to use Samba4, as Samba3 is sufficient?


Can anyone comment?

Supposing I have an AD domain (trustee) and a SAMBA3
(trusted) domain, so that SAMBA3 users could use AD resources (namely
sharepoint) without a need for a separate account?
