Btw: "Works-for-me" is a completely valid statement.
It is even a state in bugzilla. It simply means
"I do not have enough information about your
setup to reproduce your issue." It is not unfair
but encourages further exchange of information
until the problem is understood and can be addressed
or the OP's config is fixed.

Ah, thanks for the pointer.
We need to follow up on that.

I am talking about "supported by Samba upstream",
not about "supported by a vendor or distribution".

Also, in case you are not aware:
The AD/DC setup of Samba is not (yet) supported
by RedHat or Fedora. You need a self-compiled
Samba for that. Not sure about the support level...

And if you have not noticed (even tough you have
been reminded before), this mailing list
is about Samba and its components, about helping
people to get the supported configurations working
and about improving Samba and its components.

So could you please stop sabotaging these efforts?
