Even if I am still thinking in the past it doesn't invalidate the problem I

others don't even read the situation I'm trying to solve.

I don't need it to work like it used to in the NT4 sense. I don't need to
use NT4 protocols. I'm just in need of not having Samba4 write in all of
its documentation that forklift replacing your central authentication
server is the only way to move forward. Wasn't the design goal to make it

over but yet Samba4 requires me to replace it. I can see how most of
Samba's niche markets can do that but we can't.

away from Samba to Windows AD or decided to drop authentication altogether
because it was easier to do so. Honestly, I don't think you're not
