<snip Samba questions>

I don't see how any of this ties in with the original thread, as none
of your questions have anything to do with PAM administration.  If you
have questions about using Linux in a Windows domain, you need to be
asking those in the Samba support channels.  You could also explore
unifying your logins (using PAM or not) across LDAP as opposed to
proxying through Samba/winbind.
The main connection is that smb auth doesn't provide a uid/gid, but I'll
admit I'm fishing for advice hoping someone here knows a better way to
combine methods in a scenario where there are two separately managed groups
and an auth module that doesn't give account info.

Well it is possible that pam_winbind provides a uid/gid with the idmap_ad backend. But this is the PAM mailing list and not the FAQ channel for Samba.

So read the idmap_rid or idmap_ads manpage, the Samba documentation and if you still have questions, then write to the samba mailing list.

I was hoping someone would suggest a better approach than using smb or winbind at all - or share some experience with stacking authentication methods that don't have a common concept of uid/gid mapping. I expected this to be a common problem (existing AD domain doesn't exactly match what you want on Linux boxes but you don't want to manage two passwords for the common users), but maybe it isn't.
