I have been running Linux for about 4 years now and currently have setup
master controller in a Samba config (security=share) under Ubuntu, moved
the DNSMasq off to a Pi box, setting up a DMZ with Apache+ and run a
number of laptops with linuxmint and windows for the kids.
I came across an issue with uid:gid on the server indicating Nemo does
not pick up file ownership from the Dataserver properly and overlays it
with local user information all of which has lead me to wanting to use
an AD of sorts.
The short of it is can you use Samba setup to run as a PDC for single
point of user authentication??
... understand that all Linux systems will need at least a primary user
... wish to setup the rest of the users in a single repository that can
be auth from any laptop or PC
Appreciate any assistance you can provide to make this happen.
