Hi list,

here is a Samba4 AD with LDB.

Is there any limit for number of possible objects? I mean users, computers,
and other kind of nodes.

On a Samba Wiki page, the doc notes:

"How LDB uses TDB

LDB basically sits on top of TDB and manipulates the data into an LDAP-like

And I've found a doc here:

which notes, that

"Problems of Samba 4 with TDB

* Scalability
- Supported TDB version is 32 bit, which puts a 4GB limit on the database,
equals around 300 000 objects depending on their size.
- Work on the 64 bit is not progressing"

May be an ugly question, but is that means the Samba4 supports "only" about
300k objects per db?
