Re: Intergrate Heimdal's hdb-ldap and Samba

Just joined the list since I was reading the "hdb-ldap and Samba" thread
in the archive.  I'm the administrator of an OpenLDAP/SambaPDC network
with MIT kerberos on the side.  I'm also the author of -
ftp://ftp.kalamazoolinux.org/pub/pdf/ldapv3.pdf (which, of course, seems
to be down at the momemt) - I'm really familiar with LDAPish topics and
have a working understanding of Kerberos.

An integrated Samba/DSA/KDC would be a dream come true.

Agree,  I'd suspect the LDAP object will almost always exist and the
kerberos data will be additive.

I'm an LDAP administration, and I think he's correct.  'account' is the 
correct objectclass.
