My original plan was a stepped approach. Recall I created a Samba Member Server. Created a Share, entered GID, UID for all users and groups, but we could not get the member server to ever see those users/groups.
I can connect to that share from windows clients, but I have to connect as the administrator (who is mapped to root). I set ACLs with Windows Tools, and Windows still looks at them as there, but they do not function because we never could.
The Thread is:
getenv does not return any AD DOMAIN users or groups - ?nsswitch is not setup for Samba?
I am going to migrate away from Exchange. In fact MailEnable has completed implementation of mail delivery to public folders so I can go ahead and do that. Louis however recommended Kopano. I had considered and dismissed it as too expensive. I was trying to see if it was available as Open Source or if there was a subscription that would Not be expensive.
For the moment if we could go back to the Member Server and get it working I had started that to create a Replicated Storage Volume as we are having trouble with Microsoft DFS Replicated folders.
