I understand that.

My problems came from using the Samba AD Domain Controller as a file 
server. In this particular case I could not avoid it, for reasons that 
would take too much effort to explain. When I later had to join a member 
server to the network, things started to complicate. 

In this case I don't need any Active directory users to have a shell on the 
Linux servers, including administrators. Root will do. I am not using 
POSIX ACLs either. I use acl_xattr only. All clients in the network are 
Windows machines, only servers are Linux.
