Hi all,
I have test the alpha 5 (actually i'm just a newbie inside this mailing list.)
Can somebody help me with the provision setup?:
1) Differentiate between realm and domain

2) Server role that can be support by the smb.conf
           - can it be additional domain controller? if can how to? 

3) I have this scenario; I have this samba 4 as the PDC; can i used the win2k3 to be as the additional domain controller? i have used the DCPROMO; at the end, it failed to synchronize. Is possible to make it?

4) Until now, i still have problem to used the DNS, i'm using centos. Can somebody guide me on this setting by example? I have follw the instruction on how to at wiki but still failed on nslookup.

5) How about ACL used in samba 4? May i know smb.conf setting to make it success?
