My company uses 389-ds for its LDAP service, and all services are configured to use that LDAP for authentication.
I'd like to start using Samba4 as an AD DC, in order to control/manage MsWin computers.
It was simplest to me to install Samba4 configured to use its own internal LDAP server, rather than make it use my existing 389-ds LDAP server.
However, I want Samba4 to authenticate to the 389-ds, since that is where the user passwords are, and:
a) I don't know how to extract the passwords into a format that Samba4 could use, and
b) Even if I did, I don't want to maintain the passwords in 2 places (389-ds and Samba4).
Hence the question:
Is it possible to make Samba4 use an external LDAP server for authentication, and its own LDAP server for all other LDAP purposes (e.g. authorization; user-object data; computer-object data; etc.)?
