I have been using Samba for quite a while now in my production
environment, really since the very early releases of 4.
There has been some pain here and there, but it has been an exciting and
I have been noticing more and more changes in the environment, most
minor but some more significant.
A couple of examples.
I did not use--use-rfc2307 when provisioning, it was not in the Samba AD How to originally.
Can not find any way to create those records after the fact.
Now I am trying to switch from the internal DNS to BIND, and it looks
like the DNS directory has changed from /usr/local/samba/private to
(I would like to know where this is defined so that I can update it)
None of the issues I have run into are deal breakers at this point most
just nice to have or nuisances.
My question boils down to, at some point should I quit fighting the
changes that have crept in with each update and start over again new.
There are clearly dis-advantages to both scenarios.
I am not aware of any way to backup the AD data in a way that would let
me install a fresh domain then import the same machines and users.
So I think I would be starting over from scratch.
