Release Announcements

This is the latest stable release of Samba. This is the version
that production Samba servers should be running for all current
bug-fixes.  Please read the following important changes in this

Common bugs fixed in 3.0.20a include:

  o Stability problems with winbindd.
  o Crash bugs caused by incompatibilities on 64-bit systems.
  o Missing files from directory listings on AIX servers
  o User Manager interoperability problems.
  o Minor build difficulties on various platforms such as
    Solaris and OpenBSD,

Winbind, security = domain, and Active Directory

Recent security updates for Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 have
changed the fashion in which user and group lists can be obtained
from domain controllers.  In short, the RPC mechanisms used by
"security = domain" to retrieve users and groups is not compatible
with these changes.   The "security = ads" configuration is not
affected by the Windows protocol changes.

Samba developers are actively working to correct this problem in
the 3.0.21 release.  In the meantime, Administrators who are unable
to migrate to "security = ads" and must continue using "security =
domain", can define credentials to be used by winbindd for account
enumeration by executing the following command as root.

root# wbinfo --set-auth-user='DOMAIN\username%password'
