> We've been trying to add a fileserver to our current samba4 test domain. The scenario is that we have several branch offices connected by low bandwith lines. So we want to have a fileserver locally handling home directories/profiles and stuff like that but a central DC handling logins, GPO and such.

We've found bits and pieces on how to get this working like Franky (http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Franky) and information about Winbind (http://www.justlinux.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-118512.html). We have not been succesful in putting all the pieces together though.

Our solution now has been to install samba4 (alpha17) as a member server and then experimenting with the franky approach of using samba3 for the file server parts. We've managed to add the server to the domain as a member but can't seem to get authentication to flow through.
Currently the most "production quality" solution is to use a Samba4 AD
domain controller and on a separate box a Samba3 domain member with
security=ads joined to the AD domain.
