Samba with password server

Hi guys,

I have also here a Sol-10 with samba configured all is working out but just want to know if i set a password server pointing to a windows domain with Active Directory... do i still have to create a samba user on my Sol-10 or all username/pass authentication will be done on the windows domain? and if i want a new user to use the samba share ill just create his account on the windows domain?

Are you asking if LDAP will work for samba?

You have to set it up, which is not all that simple:
The Official Samba 3.5.x HOWTO and Reference Guide

read the sections on LDAP

You do not need to set up local users or smbusers. That is also tied to the security= option in smb.conf.
