Gemes, A good suggestion. The opportunity to remain on a Samba3 Domain is dwindling, due to the need for stronger than NTLMv2

production environments. A stake in the ground with a Samba4-AD release, will get the functionality, that really is desperately
needed, out there; and help to placate the ongoing political arguments for a non-samba solution.
