Samba/winbind and SSO question

Hi, all,

I see great advice for using Samba and winbind to authenticate Linux resources against Active Directory. I have searched the forums, but I don't see an answer to an issue I am facing.

We have SLES9 installed on a server and the rest of our network is Win2K3 native domain with WinXP workstations. We have an app on SLES that users access using a VT emulator. Right now, if a user fires up the emulator, they are prompted for a username and password on Linux before they can proceed to our application. We would like to have the user's credentials already authenticated in Active Directory (username, password) available to the terminal session so that when the user connects the terminal session, the username and password already in use in Active Directory are passed to the terminal session and the user is not prompted for their credentials.

Will Samba and winbind take care of that or do I have to use a 3rd party application? If 3rd party, can anyone suggest a product? Thanks to all.
