I have been asked to get our RT2 installation to use samba for
authentication. I couldn’t find anything in the places I know where to
look…google and bestpractical. Is doing such a thing preposterous?
I haven’t looked into this at all yet, but it seems tricky. Like the
best way would be to
user logs in - authenticate against NT via samba
RT sees if user exists:
true, update passwd in mysql user table
false, create user
RT sets user session
It doesn’t seem like there’s any feasible way to move away from mysql
for the user data.

When Gladstone was British Prime Minister he visited Michael Faraday’s
laboratory and asked if some esoteric substance called `Electricity’
would ever have practical significance.
“One day, sir, you will tax it,” was the answer.
