Hi Guys,

I have some questions regarding the new released version samba 3.4 . I
compiled with merge-build successfully and run "make install", it seems
only the Samba 3 was installed, samba 4 not ( the "samab4" was still in
the build directory, not copying over to system). I thought it should be
copied to system as well. I could not fingure out a way to run Samba 3
and Samba 4 and samba 3 simultaneously (when I run "samba4 -i -M
single", it always gibe me errors). But I can run Samba 4 well if I only
compiled the "source4" folder. I could not find documentation anywhere
to make both of them work at one computer. Is there anyone can help me?

Another question/concern, can Samab 4 work as Backup Domain Controller
for an exist Windows AD server environment? If no, when it plan to
support that (replication from PDC to BDC in AD environment)?
