Are you referring to NFS? NFS would work for you if the workstations
were Unix based. The Samba server would have to be the NFS master.
Otherwise, you might be referring to using the Samba server as a Primary
Domain Controller. That would work if the workstations were Windows
At a former employer we ran a Samba server as the PDC/NFS master and
that worked very well for our mixed environment... and yes, NFS is not
very secure, but we were fairly tight with our restrictions on which
machines could join the NFS - so it worked well.
