We are actually going to continue using Windows clients (moving the
entire school over to linux is an eventual goal but will not be happening
for a few years yet).
The solution getting them from a database is not possible as we do not
keep a copy of users passwords.
I'll bear in mind the idea of creating a database though and sticking
them into an NT server and a linux server that way - could be useful in
No decisions have been made yet and I'm just looking into what is
actually practical. From the look of that samba roadmap a great deal
of the features there look useful to me - and looking at the alpha the
group mapping feature looks particularly useful as presumably that
fixes the problems I've had before where group policies don't work just
by putting in a group name in poledit - you have to use default user and
have multiple policy files and give each group a different netlogon dir
(if people understand what i mean).
Thanks for all the info,
