True. My way to understand that is AD is the Samba users database. From a
Linux system point of view AD users are nothing until you deploy something
to use this database as a system users DB. So (in my mind ;) AD is the
Samba DB when joining a member server to AD and we deploy winbind or other
in PAM for AD becomes also part of the system users DB, to avoid the need
to recreate locally AD users. But still, there is Samba DB and system DB
(in my way of understanding :p)
