Hi List,
 From what I've read in many mailing lists, Samba 3 is not truly 

 From what I understand, people have been able to cluster Samba with 
varying levels of success. Transparent failover and active-active file 
serving ( 2 or more smbs serving the same files (through a cluster 
filesystem like GFS) from multiple cluster nodes simultaneously ) are 
two things that are not possible with the current Samba. Or are there 
more issues as well?

There were discussions however, that mentioned clustering being scoped 
into Samba 4. Can somebody elaborate on clustering support in Samba 4?

Many thanks,
