Andrew Hi

Three  Issues with the latest tree - (taking yesterday night)

1. I notice that the slapd 2.4.15 crashed while using ADUC. It is not a
Samba issue but slapd issue since I can see the crash at my log files.

I compiled it with debug, but have no clue how to use gdb.

2. Still When Creating Users in the domain – they aren’t being added
automatically to the Domain Users Group. I don't know why - but as I told
you before it was working in alpha6.

3. and Still I can’t change a user password from the command line anymore.
I’m getting the following:
MyNewDev:/var/log#  net password set -UAdministrator%password user
Enter new password for account [HOME\Administrator] :
net_password_set: Connection to SAMR pipe of PDC of domain 'Home' failed:
return code = -1

Same goes with non administrator user

I plan to release Samba4 alpha8 this week.

Can all interested developers please look over the state of the tree,
and the WHATSNEW4.txt file, and let me know of any reasons we should not
make the release, or update the WHATSNEW4.txt with significant changes
not yet mentioned.
