You made my day, thank you. This worked, after I left the domain, removed all dns-entries, all tdb-files and rejoined.

I did not upgrade samba.

Now there is three questions and one tiny issue left.


What will expet me when upgrading samba with standard debian-setup on the DC's and on the member? Will the update ask me if I want to keep my setup for every relevant file or is there a danger that something will be overwritten?

Which kind of GPO's are you talking about? Or do I need to do that for any kind of GPO's? I thought they would be done by the DC's. Or ist it just fpr e.g. roaming profiles or scripts on the shares?

This only relates to Posix-ACL's? So if it only Windows ACL's play a role I can safely say 'yes'?

-_- That ist what I did not keep before, because I did not allow Everyone and/or authenticated users.

Ok, I did that. But it does not seem to remember that setting. Nor does it do anything.

User mrtx is in both groups 'mrtx-group' and in 'rubens'. mrtx is the only member of 'mrtx-group'.

If user mrtx creates a file in a share of group 'rubens' its group is 'mrtx-group' and not 'rubens', as I would expect. At least on the debian machine. On the windows machine it appears to be alright and this is the important thing. But is this an inconsistency?

A thousand thanks to you and Rowland!
