depends on your config. We use PAM with LDAP (checked first) and
winbind. I usally use this to define mailaccounts w/o creating a windows
account, but if you create a user with same credentials like windows
(user/pass, anything else is unimportant) in LDAP, he is authed by that
first. After copying the box, delete him from LDAP.
