We're involved in a project that the requirements could be satisfied
with both samba3 and 4. Anyway I am testing what can be done with
Samba4 and after following the tutorial published in the official
wiki, I was able to create my test domain, and join WinXP and Win7
machines to it without a problem.

I still need to test the GPO functionality, and some other stuff, but
before continuing with that testing, I would like to as you, what do
you thing about using samba4 in a network with about 700 computers
(mixed between WinXP, Vista, 7 and 2000) and about the same amount of

Will it be stable enough? can I 'trust' samba for such network?

Thanks a lot in advance!
