No, this completely misses the point of winbind and security =
ads: Winbind removes the need to maintain local users on each
server. Instead you plug winbind into nsswitch and tell it to
use the same id mapping scheme on all servers, and hence you
have perfectly valid, same-looking unix users on all the servers
without ever touching the passwd and group files...
