    Well, it was new to me and I didn't know if it was real until after I started the thread.

    It has been known for a long time how Kerberos has everything to do with Samba/CIFS and that you cannot even log into a network without Kerberos tracking user logins. It is the basis and has been since it was created.

    When I said "Well, it was new to me and I didn't know if it was real until after I started the thread" I wasn't referring to Kerberos (or anything in particular relating to Samba's authentication mechanism). I was referring to the ability of a task to use an existing SMB connection as long as that task is running under the SID used to start the connection. It should have been obvious given the way SMB works but it never occurred to me.

    I'm a bit puzzled by that statement. Kerberos is an authentication protocol. From what I've read (which may not be accurate) Windows uses Kerberos only in a "domain" environment with Active Directory as the Kerberos Key Distribution Center. I am not in such an environment.

    In any case, I would expect some sort of "tracking" taking place in a product implementing an authentication protocol. If that tracking is logged, well, that's the software, not the protocol.
