I only did it as a project. We've since gone cloud. My teacher wrote 
some articles on it. But if I can do it, it must be easy. I'll find the 
links if you're stuck. But I do know that to do what you want to do, 
you'll have to lose winbind. It is not configurable and not ready for 
production. Many of the problems here are about winbind. That says a lot.
