Yes, that's the one I used - I've actually tried both ways, the one
with rsync and the one with git, listed on
http://ctdb.samba.org/download.html and on CTDB Wiki
I stuck to the git one eventually. The exact command I used was:

git clone git://git.samba.org/sahlberg/ctdb.git ctdb

Sure, will do. In the meanwhile - what's the version that has it? I've
tried to compile latest 3.4.x one from source and seemingly it was not
there as well. Is that 3.3 that has it?

Yep, that's something I've taken into account and ensured there were
no "interfaces" or "bind..." in the smb.conf. Anyway, please see
