    Re: How to install samba 4 as an active directory domain controller

    An excellent tutorial, sir. Thank you!

    I had a bunch of trouble here and there in getting setup, but that's mostly due to me not being much of a Linux person.

    any suggestions?
    I had this same problem. In my case, my ubuntu installation had Bind9 installed by default, but I chose samba_internal as the tutorial said. So I had to uninstall Bind9, and afterwards it worked.

    can't see the original message.
    Guess that would help though if debug is needed...

    Re: How to install samba 4 as an active directory domain controller

    I am using now the Samba4.0.3 on Ubuntu 13.10 (default pakkage). In my provision was a BIND used as a DNS server. Working fine. No problems yet. Only the canonical forgot to define correct version of the BIND in Vim /var/lib/samba/private/named.conf
    Code:
    dlz "AD DNS Zone" {
         # For BIND 9.8.0
         # database "dlopen /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/samba//bind9/dlz_bind9.so";
     
         # For BIND 9.9.0
         database "dlopen /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/samba//bind9/dlz_bind9_9.so";
     };
    I reed somewhere that in production the BIND is more preferable choice than internal DNS. I do not have links sorry...

    Re: How to install samba 4 as an active directory domain controller

    you should go Samba 4.1 (it's been out for 1 week now) compile from source no problem .
    4.0.3 is quite old and can't handle replication and such.
    I ve been using samba_internal in production. it's quite effective and I don't know why Bind would be better. I know it's robust etc but Samba_internal is based on MS dns so if you re going to have mixed infrastructures MS/Linux both will work fine as long as you don't use isc-dhcp-server (samba_internal won't update records at least prior to 4.0.7, didn't test since).
    that's been tested every day since the first install I did with samba 4.1

    probably your link about bind (quite old): https://lists.samba.org/archive/samb...er/170194.html

    Re: How to install samba 4 as an active directory domain controller

    Agreed, but the 4.0.3 is tested by canonical, and should work stable.
    Moreover, for test propose it's a good start point. In addition, many of LDAP related software (SOGo, OpenChange, Squid, OpenERP etc...) are good tested only with Samba 4.0.3. However, the 4.1.0 is recommended by most of software vendors with no guidance.

    There is just a question: what do you need from your samba appliance?

    Yeah, exactly I think this was one of the links about "greatness" of the BIND

    Re: How to install samba 4 as an active directory domain controller

    here is just a question: what do you need from your samba appliance?
    I have a complex mixed infrastructure with AD service working just great with Samba_internal.
    AD Service integration with openfire for example has been as easy as it could be.
    So my samba appliance as pretty much the same use a standard AD would have. (directory services, Kerberos authentication, DNS, directory replication)
    all is just perfect

    Agreed, but the 4.0.3 is tested by canonical, and should work stable.
    Mine is 4.1 from source on Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS no problem there. Samba 4.1 is final stable. not beta anymore

    Re: How to install samba 4 as an active directory domain controller

    It was a rhetorical question.
    By this question I mean if I need only test things and I would like to understand how things working than I prefer a fast installation method. However, if I would like to have a production environment with FSMO, GC and etc., I will definitely go to the 4.1.0... It seems to me we have here a versions holy war

    By the way, do you know something about this:
