Hi Everyone ! 

I note that all of samba AD server that i maintain are not so fast in terms of data transfer, more specifically none of them go over 40 MB/s , one particularly which i'm trying to find out why doesn't go over 20 MB/s , transfering data using other protocols like FTP , rsync , rsync over ssh on any of these machines i can easily achieve 80 MB/s ,i also can get the same on Samba if i run it as a basic standalone file server or classic pdc nt4 mode, is this normal ? I didn't try yet to deploy a basic file server and join a samba AD , is this better than use AD server itself in terms of data transfer performance ?
