Good steer! Thanks. Sorry, I was abrupt about AD. I am actually a bit grumpy with the situation at this site .. last 
year there was actually a very strong business driver for 2fa last year which needed AD and a bunch of other 
investments. That work is still on hold ... leaving a pile of legacy issues. Near the top of the pile was the samba on 
Debian wheezy dropping into old old stable :-(
