[Samba] Samba as PDC

Hi Guys,

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 
say 'admin'
... 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.


Thank you
