Hello everyone

As encouraged in the Samba 4 "Howto" I'd like to report my successes and failures.
I've configured Samba 4 on Ubuntu Server 10.04 and set it up as a domain controller. I've met great success adding computers (Windows 7) and users to the domain, deploying software through the active directory, and using roaming profiles.

However I'm stuck on something, not so important but confusing. When I install the GPMC, the tab "Group policy" disappears in the properties window of every OU! When I uninstall the GPMC the tab magically reappears! It is not that important, but I can't manage my group policies with the GPMC. The bug "works" with either Windows 7 or Windows XP. I have to precise that all the operating systems are in french, maybe it has an incidence.
