[Samba] Samba AD External Authentication to OpenDJ

Hi everyone,

Currently we have an existing OpenDJ LDAP Server containing our user 

We are looking to implement Samba AD to leverage on the GPO to managed 
the end users' workstations and file share centrally.
We are exploring if it is possible to delegate the user authentication 
to the external OpenDJ so that we will only need to manage one set of 
password for the users.

I have tried Googling for more information on this integration but the 
best info I can find is this thread back in 2015, where the developer 
stated that it wasn't possible then.

Are there any possiblity to authentication with an external source 
currently or is it still a pipe dream?

Thank you!
Best regards,
