Hello everone,

In my Company we are going through a network redesign and Planning to
retire our Novel edirectory, and Novel Servers and replace them with Samba4
(Over 150 Servers). We have setup a Samba4 test environment which seems to
be working well so far. We are an organization with multiple locations and
over 1200 users, we are also very heavy users of google apps. I have couple
of questions that I need help with.

1- Is it possible to Integrate samba4 with Google Apps for Single sign-on,
I know google has and application that Integrates Microsoft Active
Directory with Google Apps, so I assume it should be possible with Samba4
too. Has anyone tried and used this feature with success?

2- We already have over 1200 accounts on Google. Is there a way to Import
these user accounts into samba4?

I would really appreciate any help in this matter and welcome any
additional suggestions that you may have for a Project of this magnitude.
