Thanks, Samba + AD is one option I never considered, or frankly knew existed (not in that world anymore). That would fit our needs perfectly. However, there are two different companies, several departments and UNIX –vs- Microsoft dislike that would need to be overcome. I still have not been able to get the UNIX team to open up the NFS share to anything besides our old gateway so far. Funny since I put that security in place years ago.
I am going to float this by management
By what I’ve read (other than Tom’s findings) is that MS has cut back on the gateway functionality. I’m still going to try when/if I get access to a UNIX share….
