Hi all,

I am trying a different subject heading since the last question got
know responses. The question remains the same: Thanks!

 Hi all,

 I have successfully joined my linux file server to our Windows domain
 and "getent passwd" shows me a nice list of windows users with unix
 uid/gid mappings. Now I want to use this server to provide LDAP auth
 for several LTSP servers as well as export users home directories via

 How can I store the user files  that winbind knows about in LDAP
 rather than in winbindd_idmap.tdb ? I don't need this  server to be a
 PDC or even a BDC, I just need it to do file stores for windows
 clients and provide my authentication information for other LTSP

 Would I be better off just rsyncing my *.tdb's every day or so? If so
 which ones?

 I'd love to hear there was a tool that can just suck out the
 information winbind has gleaned and splat it into LDAP.
