It is good to hear that there is at least a chance to join windows 8 to
samba. The bad news is that samba 4 is still beta and not ready for
production use. I am sitting here in a bigger installation with a big
central LDAP for each and everything (not only samba). Migrating from
samba3 to samba4 is a several months task.
So I hope there will be a samba 3 based solution for using windows 8
in a domain, too.
What is the official plan here?
Can the required portions for windows 8 be backported to samba 3?
BTW: Is it possible to use samba4 with another LDAP
server/infrastructure not the samba4 supplied one?
Thanks in advance,
