Whoops, redo on this one, un-configured webmail client get my email
address wrong. Sorry for the dupe.
I was reading posts on the samba list recently and noticed a comment from
Volker Lendecke. And as one of the top Samba developers, I'm sure Volker
"For both "security=domain" and "security=ads" it is
necessary to join the computer to the domain.
security=server is the only possibility to go without that,
but please be aware that security=server is really highly
deprecated and might have suffered from bit-rot recently.
It really didn't strike me at the time, but just tonight as I was in the
process of setting up a new server as a new domain controller on a new
domain, what are we supposed to use for a Samba primary domain controller
if not security=server?????
And if Samba as a domain controller is going to be dropped, can you let me
know now? Before I get too far into the project and then have to force
them to Windows Server.
