[Samba] Samba 4.8 RODC not working

Hi Rowaland, 

I read the doc. 
The reason is the usual one. We need authentication inside the DMZ zone and do not want any modification from this zone. We also need a fileserver into this zone where corporate users can log-in. We are asked to keep the solution simple, easy to understand an maintain. I can force authentication to this DC instead of choosing the DC "randomly". 

So, do you see better solution than RODC ? 

Thanks !

Then don't worry about it, I was just checking if you had one.

The real question is, why do you want to put your AD into a DMZ ? 
I suggest you read this:

Then I fall back to, you need more help than this list can provide, 
contact Sernet or Tranquil IT or anybody who knows Linux and Samba and 
can spend time (and your money) on this problem.
