Nope. Yast already caters for the openLDAP schema which include both
windows and Linux machines. OU, LDAP backends and Krb5 are all there.
It's a closely guareded Yast secret because most of us have no idea
what the yast Samba Server module can do.

I don't believe that the tools and the definitions to change the ACLs of
all the files involved in, for example, NFS client configuration, are
there, even if you have a working ldap database. Control the permissions
to log in Linux, yes. Finely control the permissions to do somethings
only, no.

What about AppArmour? Can't that do it?

Nevermind - it appears not (I just had a look). But I'm pretty sure SELinux
has a mechanism to do this. It's been a long time since I played with it,

If such a thing existed, I'm sure someone of the yast or suse teams would
pop in and say "yes, we have that".

Maybe time for a feature request?
