I'm looking for some input on the best way to get SAMBA with OpenLDAP backend set up and using an OpenIndiana/Nappit box for all storage. I already have my ZFS pool set up and running fine.
I am running 2 Proxmox nodes with Ubuntu server vm's on them for various processing applications. My end users run Windows, OSX and Ubuntu workstations. They shell in to the vm's to run their apps and generally save the output in their home folders. They also need their home folder mappings on their workstations.
So it looks like I need a SAMBA server for them to have home folders and permissions to work accordingly across all platforms. SMB seems to be the best protocol for accomodating such a heterogenous environment. And then to have SAMBA use OpenLDAP for authentication. Does this amount to a SAMBA PDC scenario?
I want to have all data land on the ZFS box first and foremost. So it looks like I will end up having all the vm's mounting shares via cifsmount. I really want to avoid NFS altogether because i see permissions getting tangled up. Plus I want LDAP involved on any data access.
