This is the latest stable release of Samba. This is the version
that production Samba servers should be running for all current

o Crash bugs caused by incompatibilities on 64-bit systems.
o Missing files from directory listings on AIX servers
o User Manager interoperability problems.
o Minor build difficulties on various platforms such as

Samba developers are actively working to correct this problem in
the 3.0.21 release. In the meantime, Administrators who are unable
to migrate to "security = ads" and must continue using "security =
domain", can define credentials to be used by winbindd for account
enumeration by executing the following command as root.
root# wbinfo --set-auth-user='DOMAIN\username%password'
