I have zero experience with this so my question may appear fairly
naive.  What about user home directories and shells on *NIX hosts
other than the AD-DC?  I read somewhere that user UNIX Attributes
other than UID and GID are not implemented in Samba.

My use-case would be sshd session authentication on a remote host
using an AD-DC PAM module.
