I test samba 4 for AD authentification and file-server usage.

My file-server use posix ACL (XFS filesystem) for manage acces between 

So I must use some trick ("steve posix-tify script") for adding 
posixAccount to activedirectory tree.

But my questions are : 

who use samba 4 file-server part ?
How other sys admin permit user to store data on a server (and not on 
user's workstation)?

I have more than 300 groups, more than 200 users and machines.
I have more than 800 Gb of data.

Create user or group in ADUC and after pass a "posix-tify" script) script 
will add complexity for management.

best regards


PS : I see in smb.conf (valid for samba 4) that there is a add user 
script, but I don't understand how it work !
