I think MKS has an add-in for Active Directory to make it work with
unix. Does anyone know if it is possible to use pam_smb for password
checking but LDAP for account information instead of needing the
local password file? That would suit my needs nicely for a few
boxes with limited users (using password file accounts only) and many
boxes that allow all users, with passwords the same everywhere.
