We have several samba printservers and fileservers with
"security=server" validating against several PDC with ldap (samba 2.2.6).
I found a lot of ldap request like:
beating the ldap servers: one before *each* validation in every print
job or share session.
I found this is related with a security issue as Jeremy says in the
To avoid this I tried to use security=domain because server_validate()
is called by check_server_security(), but our servers joined to the
domain-asigned likes very much ask to the neighborn PDC as
"security=server" than their domain-asigned-server (perhaps the
subneting, or so... is a big and complex network).
The question is if I can skip the code around
to avoid the calls to ldap and if it is safe.
We are using only samba servers.
