Would you be able to do this as machine specific shares? Or are you
mounting user specific shares?
I could throw together a simple Samba GPO for mounting machine shares.
This would allow you to mount as root via winbind. I started working on
this a while back, but never finished it. If you are willing to test
something, I could throw something together.
