I have three Samba file servers running different versions of CentOS and
Samba. They are all joined to a proper Windows 2003 domain.
I'd like to migrate the WIndows domain to 2016 and all the Linux servers to
I can do Windows 2003->2012->2016 without too much trouble.
I'm concerned about the Samba side. The servers are all using extended
file system permissions and extensive windows groups/permissions. Would
the "idmap" range change? Is there any way to mitigate this risk?
I realize I can follow the steps here:
to create the new servers and rsync the files/acls but how do I ensure the
permissions don't get lost and continue to work? getfacl/setfacl?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
