Hope I would get some help regards to samba 4. I am doing own open source
knowledge learning and testing.
I have few doubts and couldn't conclude whether it is problem or not.
If you can clarify this, then proceed to my doubts below.
I have linux samba file server. it is version 4.6. I have setup 2 samba
server and configured sharing and it works fine individually.
I am trying to configure DFS load balance in one server and create the link
of these 2 shares.
While I am checking the access from windows client, I could open,
but I can open only one server share through this DFS sharename at a time,
in which status is active. my questions are
1. what is the load balance concept in this samba4? should both be
active right? if not why the technical name 'load-balance'?
2. can't make two shares as active simultaneously? not possible or won't
work in this samba server load balance term?
