[Samba] Samba 3.6.23, Windows Server 2012 R2 AD Environment

I know it's an old release, and my apologies for wasting anyone's time.

I've been asked about an older version of AIX 7.1 with Samba 3.6.23

The requestor is moving to a Windows Server 2012 R2 domain.


They want AIX/Samba 3.6.23 to be a domain member, using the 2012 R2 AD to
authenticate users to access Samba shares on the AIX server.

This is the way it's working today at a 2003 functional level.


Will 3.6.23 work this way with 2012 R2, or is an upgrade into the 4.X family

The requestor is upgrade-wary, so if they can stay at 3.6.23, that's the way
they want to go.


Thank you in advance for any guidance offered!
