Scusate, mi rispondo da solo, ma nel wiki questa informazione o non
c'è, o non l'ho trovata.
Dal changelog di samba4.2:
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE SUPPORT END OF SAMBA 3
With the final release of Samba 4.2, the last series of Samba 3 has
been discontinued! People still running 3.6.x or earlier,should
consider moving to a more recent and maintained version (4.0 - 4.2).
One of the common misconceptions is that Samba 4.x automatically
means "Active Directory only": This is wrong!
Acting as an Active Directory Domain Controller is just one of the
enhancements included in Samba 4.0 and later. Version 4.0 was just the
next release after the 3.6 series and contains all the features of the
previous ones - including the NT4-style (classic) domain support. This
means you can update a Samba 3.x NT4-style PDC to 4.x, just as you've
updated in the past (e.g. from 3.4.x to 3.5.x). You don't have to move
your NT4-style domain to an Active Directory!
And of course the possibility remains unchanged, to setup a new NT4-style
PDC with Samba 4.x, like done in the past (e.g. with openLDAP backend).
Active Directory support in Samba 4 is additional and does not replace
any of these features. We do understand the difficulty presented by
existing LDAP structures and for that reason there isn't a plan to
decommission the classic PDC support. It remains tested by the continuous
The code that supports the classic Domain Controller is also the same
code that supports the internal 'Domain' of standalone servers and
Domain Member Servers. This means that we still use this code, even
when not acting as an AD Domain Controller. It is also the basis for
some of the features of FreeIPA and so it gets development attention
from that direction as well.
