[GRLUG] Samba user management

I've been using Samba4's active directory authentication for about a year
now, in a strictly Linux environment. I'd hardly consider samba-tool as
hard to use, but some people like point-and-click. Personally, I'd rather
have everything on the server managed by CLI, but that's a preference.

I have heard good things about Ajenti <http://ajenti.org/> recently if you
want something like Webmin. Not something I've used personally, but it
seems to be cleaner. Not sure if they have a plugin for Active
Directory/Samba management. Also, if you are using Samba4, it *is* an
Active Directory server for all intents and purposes. If they have a
Windows box, you can just fire up any of the tools available for AD

I use SSSD for Samba4/Active Directory authentication with PAM.
