Thank you for the replies, but at 1800hrs Thursday night I wiped
everything and started with a fresh build of 4.4 stable. By 2300hrs I
had a stable AD setup. I will wait until 4.5 is worked out a bit more
before upgrading, and I will probably test it in a virtual environment
via VirtualBox first.

Andrew, thank you for taking the time to respond. I expect issues from
time to time. You guys are an open-source community and the odds that
you can test every configuration of hardware, OS, and software is
virtually non-existent. I do appreciate the effort you and the Samba
team, as well as the member who help on this list (Rowland seems to be
on here almost 24hrs a day) put into the project. Thanks!

Finally, I too would like to know if the settings are going to be
honored in 4.5 and beyond. If so, how would the migration from 4.4 to a
newer version go if we do not have those lines in our current
configuration file?
