I know Samba is an amazing project, but is that setup usable for central
user management for other applications? With an LDAP backend for those
apps not living in a Windows world?
Somebody suggested killing the Ubuntu fileserver and switch to CentOS 8.
That seems to work.
Does that mean that Samba works better on CentOS than on Ubuntu? Somehow
I would not expect Ubuntu or Canonical to shoot themselves in the foot
by not supporting authenticating Samba to a pretty well known standard
product like FreeIPA. But maybe I am missing the point here.
