Hi there,
Currently Samba 3.20.b (SLES 9.3) is running in a standalone server in  AMD64 platform. Users from Windows platform can create/delete NFS files without logging into the Samba server, username exist in the sambaserver but no password is required to map a share e.g. \\sambaserver\sharename. We would like to move to VMware ESX 3.2 update 4 platform running in x86-64 platform.

What I need to know if there is any known issue using Samba 3.0.28 (SLES 10.2) or Samba 3.0.33 (RHEL 5.3) on VMware ESX 3.2 update 4? Also if there is any issue with Samba 3.x and Windows 2008 AD?

Your assistance is highly appreciated.
