This is a preview release of the Samba 3.0.11 code base and
is provided for testing only.  This release is *not* intended
for production servers.  However, there have been several bug
fixes since 3.0.10 that we feel are important to make available
to the Samba community for wider testing.

Common bugs fixed in 3.0.11pre2 include:

~  o Inefficiencies when searching non-AD LDAP directories.
~  o Failure to expand variables in user domain attributes
~    in tdbsam and ldapsam.
~  o Memory leaks.
~  o Failure to retrieve certain attribute when migrating from
~    a Windows DC to a Samba DC via 'net rpc vampire'.

Additional features introduced in Samba 3.0.11pre2:

~  o Support for the Windows privilege model to assign rights
~    to specific SIDs.
~  o New administrative options to the 'net rpc' command.

LDAP Changes
- ------------

If "ldap user suffix" or "ldap machine suffix" are defined in
smb.conf, all user-accounts must reside below the user suffix,
and all machine trust-accounts must be located below the machine

Privilege Model
- ---------------

Samba 3.0.11pre2 supports the following assignable rights

SeMachineAccountPrivilege  Add machines to domain
SePrintOperatorPrivilege   Manage printers
SeAddUsersPrivilege        Add users and groups to the domain
SeRemoteShutdownPrivilege  Force shutdown from a remote system
SeDiskOperatorPrivilege    Manage disk shares

These rights can be assigned to arbitrary users or groups
via the 'net rpc rights grant/revoke' command.  Only members
of the Domain Admins group may assign rights to a SID.  More
details of Samba's privilege implementation will be available
in a forthcoming HOWTO.
