Remove dependency on POSIX when using Samba4
- Samba 3 works well with Fd and an external LDAP tree . FD is obliged to maintain a dependency between Posix account and samba Account . OK no problem with it !
- Samba 4 contains is own LDAP directory . From several advice the best ways is to create a task to sync internal SAMBA LDAP from FD Ldap with LSC ( for example)(by the way, you could replace Samba 4 per ActiveDirectory)
In the last case, Is it necessary to keep a dependency posix <=> samba tab ? This dependency is constraining ... In fact I just want to create an "Microsoft" Identity wich could be done without providing all posix field like uidNumber, Posixnumber home Directory and so one ..
A flag could be done in samba plugin config backend ? ( no idea about consequence , but I guess that is the same problem for group)
Available to discuss on It .
