Re: [Samba] Minimal AD DC server for dev/test setup




About the last question, I'll be reading up on samba-tool. Apologies.

A better question is: can I run the DC without an attached DNS server? How
little can I get away with running?

In my imagination, I should be able to run just the LDAP+Kerberos parts,
AIUI that's all I need, skipping DNS, fileserving, winbind, etc; blame this
on my view of AD as a quirky LDAP. Again, scoped for my use cases, which
are essentially LDAP-connection-and-lookup against the AD-flavored LDAP
that AD contains.

thank you,
