The LDAP schema of the Domino Directory can be extended by adding additional fields and subforms to the design. It could be modified in such a way that it would contain all the necessary fields which are required for SAMBA  to use it directly as its LDAP directory.  Many SMBs today store their users twice (once in Domino and then for example in OpenLDAP). However the greatest function would be that it would allow to use Notes-groups for access to file shares. And the management of Notes-groups can be "assigned" to specific users.
PS: OK it may sound weird, but i already tried it and it even worked for log-ins. So it is not that difficult to do.

We are tying to get Samba to talk with Domino but cannot get the sambaSAMAccount to populate into the Domino LDAP Schema..any help would be greatful

The fact that Samba needs to search for the SambaSAMAccount objectclass it is seen as a Samba problem, not a Domino LDAP server this correct or is there a workaround i dont know about ?
