I have set up a Linux system with its own user account administration. It is not part of any domain (other than DNS). Now I want to allow its users to mount their home directories on a Windows system.
One way of doing this is by keeping two user account administrations: one maintained with
the other with
smbpasswd. This seems needlessly complicated. I want to maintain just one.
How can I best arrange this? The system is running Ubuntu 12.04 (Desktop).
