I have what may be a silly question, but I don't see a clear answer to this in the documentation.

I'm using CIFS on OES 11 SP2 and I'm currently using eDir authentication. Now, I know if I switch to Third-Party Domain authentication, then the user auth will go against AD and the password in eDir is not used.

But my silly question is, if I use Third-Party domain auth, do you even need a matching/corresponding user ID in eDir? Or is that still required. I THINK a matching UserID is required in eDir, but I don't see this spelled out in the docs (I guess I could test it, but I figured I'd ask).
