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.
