I gave up trying to compile SAMBA 4 to work with Python on SLES 9 using alpha 8.
Nothing I did would ever work. SLES 10 works fine but SLES 9 does not.
However, I did
get SLES 9 to work on an earlier release but it just became so frustrating to
SLES 9 trying to test SAMBA 4 in preparing everything so that it would work
"test" production environment. What I do now is run SLES 10 AD servers and join
SAMBA 3, running on SLES 9, to SAMBA 4. This works very well for us because
our production servers are SLES 9 at this time. I can live with upgrading a
for replication, etc., when it's ready.
I do have some other questions, if you don't mind:
*) Is it possible, at this time, to compile SAMBA 4 to use SSL binding for LDAP
calls to AD?
*) How is the SAMBA team progressing on back-end replication for SAMBA 4 AD?
These two things are the *main* things that would get us very close to rolling
Also, everything else seems to be working fine from my testing in that I have
not seen any
issues yet. The SAMBA team is doing a fantastic job!
