I'm going to migrate my old CUPS server to a new setup. It shall provide 
the printing backend for Samba4 and should integrate as seamless as 
possible. Both Windows and Linux users should not require additional 
passwords, but should be authenticated by their Kerberos tickets.

Is there anything particular to consider? E.g. has the CUPS server to be 
joined to the AD and should it run a Samba instance of its own? Or is it 
possible to have the DC delegate jobs to the CUPS server? Are there best 

  - lars.
