AD is standard procedure everywhere for over a decade now, VMs aren't

probably be more familiar with the new setup than whatever you have now.

Just put a batch file in autostart, as long as you have a way to tell
what department those users are in.

If you want to centrally manage users, there's no practicable way around
an LDAP/NT domain (samba 3) or an Active Directory (samba 4).
