> Given the feedback from everyone, here is the feature
> implementation and release proposal I'm throwing out
> See the updated Roadmap at
> also for more goodies.
> This plan allows us to set given milestones for testing
> and release. This does not mean that features in
> release 2 are not important for a PDC. This is just
> a means or ordering the implementation so we can
> get a stable release out there as soon as the
> acceptance criteria is met.
> Note that I've not included Exchange plugins here.
> I think I would consider that to be a separete project
> (beyond this scope).
> Release 1:
> * Domain logon support for Windows NT 4.0 SP3+ and
> Windows 2000 clients
> * User and group enumeration by domain
> member services such as assigning users to
> NTFS ACLs and share permissions.
> * Support for the full range of user profile
> settings such as valid logon hours, password
> expiration, profile location, home directory, etc...
> Release 2:
> * Participation in Windows NT 4.0 SAM replication
> protocols both as a Primary Domain Controller
> and as a Backup Domain Controller
> Release 3:
> * Ability to initiate and maintain Inter-Domain
> Trust Relationships in an existing Windows
> NT multi domain network.
I must say as Eric in South Park.
