I am trying to go after learning Samba4 from two directions. Code and
implementing it. (If you know Samba4, please help me answer the
questions after the brief explanation.)
I have used the following scenario before, it is real and a way for me
to learn things:
My siblings and I are setting up some family services (over VPN, etc.).
There are X of us, including 1 being parents.
So, we have X families. We are wanting these to do inter-domain trusts,
or just forest level trust.
Should all trust one another.
Q1: How do I set the Unix uid/gid range in Samba4 for the local domain?
Is it possible before the first user is created?
Q2: As I understand it, there are no inter-domain trusts yet with
Samba4, is this accurate? Is it planned?
Q3: As I understand it, Samba4 doesn't do forests yet. Is this accurate?
Is it planned?
Q4: If I setup the domains now with Samba4, can they be converted to a
forest or setup with trusts later when it is supported?
