> Hello to all
> I've been testing Samba4 for a while and noticed non critical issues
> so far.
> My plan would be to use one samba4 DC as additional DC in win2008 network
> So I do have 4 win DCs in 4 separated sites (one domain and 4 sites)
> and I want to use this Samba4 as DC in 5th separate site .
> It will be acting only as AD DC , Fileserver and print server.
> Since I noticed (from the forum) that Filesharing is kind a more
> stable in Samba3 than 4 , I decided to use Freenas as Fileserver
> (joined to the domain, and using samba4 as domain dns )
> and I must say the cooperation between S4 and FreeNas (in my
> test-lab) (just joined to domain without using freenas-samba4) is
> pretty stable (I virtualized Samba4-Centos and Freenas9 on the same
> There is only one issue I noticed regarding replication (in my lab
> also): If I turn off replication beetween DC in AD sites-and-services
> console , the Samba4DC and WINDC are still replicating . How come ?
> The main question would be :
> If I join Samba4 DC in this productional Win2008 Domain (4 sites) , is
> there any chance that this Samba4 DC endangers the WIN domain ?
> If Samba4 site,for some reason, does not work , it is acceptable
> because this is not critical site and I always have time to fix it
> But if potential problem in Samba4DC causes problem in WIN-part of the
> domain (fsmo goes down because of some false replication or something
> like that)
> than it would mean high risk for me
> So does joining Samba4DC in windomain represents any kind of danger or
> not ?
> I really appreciate, and congratulate on, Samba4 work and hopefully
> replace very big part of windows portion of customers intranet
> Thank you very much in advance
