We now discuss this:

set up a new ADS-domain based on samba-4 (at first in a VM running on 
one of the 2 servers) and set up some trust relationship.

Our new small domain trusts the domain "BigFatCompany" and we limit 
access to the shares via smb.conf etc

Might be more comfortable and integrated ... I will read more on these 
trusted domain stuff.
