would be very useful for sysadmins :-))

The idea of putting the scripts in the ldap-dir is good :-)
I saw the implementation of this on a novell-netware server.
They have also a LDAP-server for managing their user-accounts,
organized as trees, which have notes of locations, division and
On every hierarchical-level you are able to define logon-skripts.
If a user does a login, the several skripts at the different levels
are merged together.
I this is would be also a great oppertunity for mananging samba-domains.
Through the dn it is easyly possible to get the informations, and
to merge the logon-scripts.
Maybe the standard samba-schema could be extented with that attribute ?
A script, maybe written in perl, could be executed as pre-exec,
and can create the logon-script on-the-fly.
But which logon-parameters could be used at the logon.
Do I get the full dn ?
interesting idea. maybe later.
