[K12OSN] two samba servers on one Win2k3 domain without trusts?

Here's a thought:

Why not have  your Samba servers participate  as member servers in Active
In so doing, you can administer all your Windows and Linux computer and user
accounts using the standard Windows MMC.

You can configure your Samba servers to be ldap/winbind clients
authenticating to AD.
 The beauty of the Linux PAM stack is that you can point it to an AD
authentication source via winbind and/or LDAP.

Why maintain 2  user directories when one will suffice?  Administration is
much easier if you can keep all your computer and user objects in a single

I assume that you have no plans to get rid of  AD in the near future, if
at  all.
