So, as far as i understand it: apart from the missing setuid check of the (turned off?) AUTH module everyhing else should work by using ldap as authentication mechanism?  It's no problem for us if the users can't set any rights on their windows clients, only WE set them ;-) and working rsbac ACLs on the unix filesystem layer would be perfect for a samba server/netware substitute, much better than working with 'setr-/getacl'. And there would still be a lot of possibilities with the other rsbac modules. So the whole system would be much better than a standard Samba+ldap+posix-ACLs combination...
Thanks for the fast answers.
