Certainly the MS Domain model is probably not a good starting point. As for
MAD....bear in mind that you can't do an anonymous bind - apart from
that....yes it will work. I'm not sure where Samba is with MAD.
An alternative approack might be to use a native LDAP gina for the Windows
machines (on the clients).
Re: Single Password - Linux & Windows
Well, either that or install MIT, Heimdal or Shishi Kerberos someplace,
and have both the RedHat Linux and MS-Windows boxen autenticate to that:
Problem ofcource is: you'll have to configure MS' stuff to workgroup
rather then domain - and loose all the pretty/clicky menus in so doing.
That probably depends greatly on the experience and knowledge day-to-day
admins have, and whether or not there are any MS-Windows client boxen. For
when it's only (internet) servers, and CLI access needed, one might as
well use OpenSSH keys with a "single" passphrase:
Samba v3.x can be a client/member, but not a domain controller as off yet.
This does seem to be (one of) the main feature(s) aimed for in Samba v4.x ...
