I discussed this with another admin and he came up with "Windows
Anmeldeinformationen" ... maybe "stored passwords" in english?
This is an improvement as it allows to store credentials in a safe(r)
way ... I assume it is hashed and encrypted.
So no more cleartext pw on the client, no more pw-entry at start-time
(at least not for connecting the shares).
OK, if the upstream admin resets the users PW, he gets access to the
samba-shares as well ... but this would be noticed ("hey, my pw doesn't
We will test that in more detail tmrw and check if it is enough.
A first test worked fine (entered servername, user/pw ... batch without
user/pw connects fine)
- additionally I will have to look into the transport crypto: traffic
goes through "hostile" networks ;-)
