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.

Just an idea could you not use the "net vampire" command to pull all the accounts over ? I've never used it myself but looks like you might be a start :-)
