Isn't it possible to add another DC to your environment?
Doing that you get another instance of your database then you could upgrade
your DC with very less risk...

> Hello to all,
> I currently have a samba server with the following specs :
> - Samba 4.1.7 , compiled install from source code (samba wiki guided)
> - CentOS 6.5 x86_64 (VM)
> - AD DC + print server / CUPS
> - Internal DNS server
> I'm considering an upgrade to the last stable release 4.4.2.
> Since this server is in production with 400 users , 500 computers (XP, 7
> Pro, OSX) , NAS members (Synology) , and 15 printers, I can't take any
> risks about this upgrade.
> - Is there any point I have to take care about before this upgrade ? I read
> some problems about RDP authentication in previous releases , is it solved
> in 4.4 ? Performance issues ?
> - Is the process : ./configure ; make ; samba stop ; make install ; samba
> start , the way to proceed ?
> - Is there any data to backup before ? (I plan to backup the entire VM
> - From the client point of view, in case of 4.4 dysfunction is it possible
> to go back to 4.1.7 seamlessly by restarting the 4.1.7 VM (I'd like to
> avoid to rejoin 500 PCs ...) ?
> Any advise welcome .
