Hi again,

I've dropped wing's rpms.
I updated my DC's to el7.5, installed samba 4.7.6 from 
http://samba.tranquil.it/centos7/stable and things seem to work well so 
far. One thing that would be welcomed is to have proper repodata under 

I mirrored the http repo and created repodata for my setup by using this:

/usr/bin/createrepo --database --simple-md-filenames --workers=4 \

/usr/bin/createrepo --database --simple-md-filenames --workers=4 \

@Denis : Thanks for the hints and links, very much apreciated.
