In fact currently in my test environment using the same version of OS 6.10
and Samba 4.8.5.
I ran 'netstat -plaunt | egrep "ntp|bind|named|samba|?mbd"', I have
:::3268, :::3269, I do not see 0.0.0.0:3268 and 0.0.0.03269.
While I use a Windows PC join to my test domain, I have no issues with GC.
Not sure how the GC problem can happen but seems to me it looks like a
Would the chances of getting be lower if were to use a higher version of OS
and Samba? =)
Now that I have quite a number of Windows PC under this AD, hope you can
correct me if I were to use the below steps:
I referred from Samba wiki
Example to remove DC1 from AD
1) Transfer FSMO to DC2
2) Demote DC1
3) stop DC1 samba service
4) Disconnect DC1 IP
5) Configure new_DC1 IP
6) Join new_DC1 to AD
7) Transfer FSMO from DC2 to the new_DC1
I am considering to use CentOS 7.6.1810 with Samba 4.10.6 for my new_DC1.
Prefer to use back the same hostname and IP address.
Thanks for your advice.
Thanks and Regards
