So far for standalone server, Rowland, but is not possible to authenticate (just autenticate) on active directory? This configuration is now working on another server with samba 3 ... access is allowed to users declared in /etc/passwd (these users do not have a unix password) and the client use transparently the password they supplied at login time.
I am not able to reply this configuration in samba 4

thank you
