Auth with smb?

Is anyone using RT with their users stored in either a Windows domain or
Active Directory? Would you be willing to share what you’ve had to do to
get it working, perhaps off-list?

I’m particularly interested in authenticating via smb WITHOUT having
equivalent users in /etc/passwd.

-t.

I’ve got that sort of scenario working pretty well, using Apache’s
mod_auth_ldap to authenticate against our Active Directory server, with
a couple of code snippets from the mailing list archives to auto-create
entries in RT’s user database as necessary.

Do feel free to drop me a note directly if you’d like. I’ll be glad to
share whatever help I can.
