Re: [Samba] Samba 4 AD and Samba 3.6 Fileserver GID Problem

Hi Rowland,

thanks for the clarification, although I hoped for a different solution.

We use a third party archiving software that currently only supports samba 3.6.

Hi all,

I am preparing a migration from openLDAP to Samba 4 AD

I am trying to get a Samba 3.6 fileserver (for different reasons it
has to be samba 3.6) with ad backend to work with a Samba 4 AD.

Almost everything is working. The only problem is that the fileserver
does not map the users gidNumber correctly.

And that is your problem, Samba 3.6 will ALWAYS use Domain Users as the
users primary group, you need to use at least 4.6.0 for the users
gidNumber to be used as the users primary group.

Why do you have to stick with 3.6 ?
