We have Macs authenticating to our NetWare 6.5 SP5 servers. We are also using
eDir to store Mac preferences with Workgroup Manager. We have an OS X (10.4.8)
streaming server, to which Macs can connect, with authentication via eDir.

Our next step is to make the OS X streaming server available to Windows clients
via SMB. If I set the server to be a domain member, I can login, however, we
have only a small portion of our users in the domain, so this is not a solution.
(Neither is maintaining a large number of accounts on the OS X box.)

Essentially, we are trying to get the Mac to pass the SMB authentication on to
eDir. We have played around with the AuthenticationAuthority attribute (on the
OS X server) as this has helped in Kerberos environments (however, no kerb
here), however, authentication always fails.

Anybody have anything like this working? Any tips?
