Here at Tranquil IT we are porting RPM packages from Fedora to CentOS7/RH7 for some of our clients. We have a copy of those RPMs on our wiki at https://dev.tranquil.it/wiki/Samba4 , more specifically in the https://samba.tranquil.it/centos7/ directory.

That's interesting, thanks. Do you have a maintained/packaged .repo for /stable/? (I wasn't able to find one).

By the way, we are compiling using heimdal kerberos and not MIT like it is configured by the default in the Fedora packages.

(And the RHEL packages too, it seems. Which is the reason why Samba AD-DC is currently disabled by default on RHEL7).

If you are a Redhat customer, it would be good to go forward to your redhat representative to say that you'd be interested in Samba-AD support by Redhat. The more people will ask for it, the more chance there is that Samba-AD will be first class citizen in Redhat ecosystem in the future!

Reading through https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=910464, it seems AD-DC support will land in RHEL8.. no hope for el7, I guess..

For minor upgrade, you mostly can go forward without much stress. For major upgrades, it is always better to test an upgrade on a snapshot and do a dbcheck first. Dbcheck is getting pickier at every major version to get the best and nicest ldb database for your beloved domain.

That's a good tip, thank you.

Kind regards,

Vincent (who happens to be a french person living in Canada). :)
