Samba PDC , LDAP user authentication , what about Machines ?
I have a Samba fileserver which is able to authenticate users to a !!read-only!! ldap server ( an always up to date copy of our corporate ldap ) , Samba even creates home dirs when they not exist (pam_mkhomedir, works great !!) , but the problem starts when joining a winxp sp2 machine or any other machine , to the domain it provides , I cant get the machine in the local smbpasswd file , because samba authenticates to ldap , therfore it wants to fill the ldap wit the machine name , but thats nog supported in our ldap , I would like to keep my ldap nice and clean , because machine name's change a lot , and after a while my ldap will be polluted ,.
Does anyone have an idea to split the user authentication to ldap and machine adding to the normal smbpasswd, without having to add the machines manually ?
