The macro idea sounds good.
What we are doing at the moment with Samba4 is storing the
unixHomeDirectory attribute in the directory and pulling it back out
map passwd uid samAccountName
map passwd homeDirectory unixHomeDirectory
map group uniqueMember member
It gives us the flexibility we need without using winbind. I was
wondering if there was an official way to do this.
