The last I heard from this guy, he was running Samba 4 as an AD DC, now 
he seems to have joined to a windows 2012 server, he is also having 
problems using samba4 with OpenChange (over on the Sogo mailing list). 
Now he wants to ssh into a machine running samba and requires help, he 
isn't supplying any further info and expects somebody to magically tell 
him exactly what to do.

 From what he has posted previously, English is not his first language, 
so you can make allowances for that, but his queries are basically not 

I think he needs to find someone whose English is a lot better than his 
before he posts again. He then needs to tells us just how he is running 
samba4, provide the usual conf files etc and just what he wants to do.
