This was acquired by several weeks of testing on some version of samba
with test PDC/BDC and a few windows clients. I am not sure of the
exact version. It was probably 3.0.X. The clients were mostly 32 bit
windows XP with a few 64 bit XP machines. Outside of this test domain
we have used samba for around 10 years and we are still using the
original domain which has grown from a single samba PDC to a PDC with
several BDCs, multiple LDAP servers and at least 1/2 dozen domain
member servers since the PDC and BDCs do not act as fileservers. I do
not have the test setup to try again with more recent samba but I
guess I could easily create servers under Virtual Machines.
