Dear Experts:

Iam planning to implement samba domain controller with fds/389 directory server as a password backend. As we have around 25 mobile users working in a marketing department who uses laptops now iam confused how and what type of configuration to be done so that these laptop users have an access to their required resources/shares on the server as these users will visit the office one to few hours on daily basis some times will visit the office once in a week or so. Request you to please suggest me a configuration to handle this. thanks in advance.

I guess the laptops are windows? If so you should be able to join the PCs to the domain and the users login as a domain account. when they're offline they will login to their PC using the same account on cached credentials.

yes, they will need to login to the domain account while on the network, and then they can use the cached credentials after that. it's a function of windows, should not matter that the domain is samba.

linux you may have trouble...if you're using ldap to login to a Windows domain from linux, or if you're using NIS, I don't think either support cached credentials. maybe winbindd, I'm not sure.

local linux account might be the only option there
