Re: [Samba] Migrate OLD PDC on Centos5 to Centos6

The OS is probably not an issue. The samba version may be more of an issue.

I have an oracle linux 6 system (another RHEL derivative) with samba 3.6.23. I seem an option to install samba 4.2.10 using yum.

I think both versions are end-of-lifed. You may be safer going with CentOS 7. You can configure Samba 4 a classic domain controller with minimal if any smb.conf changes.

You will probably find (or probably already found) that getting unsupported version of samba working with Windows systems is getting more and more difficult. If windows systems are patched for samba badlock but the samba systems are not , you may have problems.

I want to move this setup to Centos 6.

Some one running this layout under Centos6 without issue?

I don't want to right now to work with AD style yet, no time for testing.

Thanks guys.
