Hi All,

Playing with Samba4 RC6 and its working amazing in my test network as a DC.

One thing i am not clear with is who to join a file server to it.

on the file server do i install samba4 the same way and run:

samba-tool domain join member ...

i did try net join ads but it seems it didnt compile in ads then i saw some people saying this was not the way to do it.

Soooo i just want to get a clear answer what is the recommended way on joining a linux server as a domain member with samba4?
