Re: [Samba] Best way to integrate Unix with AD.

Is there a good guide for how to set up a Samba based AD domain controller with RFC2307 attributes so I can experiment... I can't get the Windows guys in my company to do anything Microsoft don't provide a check box for, unless I can teach them how to do it... but I've not used any of these Windows technologies for a very long time...

At least if I can show a working system then someone from the Windows team might consider looking at it.... and if I tell them to do something that ultimately doesn't work, we'll be back to square one but they will be doubly reluctant, so I need to learn more about AD than them... sigh.

Hi all,

I know this is a little off topic (although it might not be because
I'm sure there's a solution involving Samba!)... but I hope one of
you fine people can advise me on the best approach to achieving an
integrated directory supporting Unix/Linux as a first class citizen,
storing autofs maps, as well as uid, gid and home folders for each
user... and how would that be managed.

I see Microsoft is removing the Unix services extensions with Server
2016, so I'm really wondering what the best, and most long term
sustainable way to integrate a directory so that both platforms
operate as intended, and those users are manageable.
 From my understanding, they only removed the idmu server etc, they
haven't removed the RFC2307 attributes. Even if they did, Samba would
still have them.

You can use samba-tool to manage the creation of RFC2307 users and
