CIFS questions (ACLs, Active Directory)

Hi,

I started evaluating Alfresco and have a some questions regardings CIFS. Although I used wiki and forum search, I did not find the expected solutions/answers so any help/pointers appreciated.

First of all, the alfresco server should replace our fileservers (Samba/Windows Server). We don't use anything special, only some basic ACLs. However, when connecting to the Alfresco CIFS  drive (using Windows), I don't see how I can specify ACLs for every file as the security tab is missing (it is present when connecting to a Samba server). Of cource, I would expect that specified CIFS ACLs would be also in effect when using WebDAV or other access methods.

And my second question is related to Active Directory: If the Alfresco server is added as a member server in an Active Directory domain, do I need to create special 'Alfresco users'? I would love to see Alfresco just getting its users list from the domain controller so there would nothing special to do. Is that possible?

Thank you very much for your help.
