I cannot influence how anyone thinks, I can only post what I think. I 
know that I come across as terse, but that was the way I was brought up, 
don't use a lot of words when one or two will do. I do not think that at 
the age of 67 that I am likely to change.

If you look carefully at what I posted there, I was agreeing with you, 
but I added a rider that without context it is hard to understand why 
the commands changed and if they are actually needed at all. From my 
perspective, they are not required, a Samba Unix domain member worked as 
expected on Rocky Linux 8 & 9 without them, or so my testing has proven 
to myself, others may have a different experience.

 From my testing over the last week or so, setting up a Samba Unix 
domain member isn't that much different whatever distro you use, it is 
the differences in the distros that you have to work around.
