Re: [Samba] Samba4 on Ubuntu 18.04

A sort of digest reply...

Yes, doing an active directory controller [ADC] not just a workgroup-share.
[Though, not "joining" a DC already in existance, but creating a new AD setup.]

RPvs> If so, then yes and it was hell
What exactly was hellish about it? 
Is it your opinion I should use something else, compile from source, or what?
Did you get it to work satisfactorily eventually?

[I know you're a long-time list contributor, so I'm very interested in your thoughts.]

>What do you need, yes i have compiled a whole samba ad dc structur with 18.04.

I have compiled Samba4 on Ubuntu from source before, but I'd really like to avoid doing that. It seems like a reasonable trade-off to sacrifice some lack of features [using an older version] for having Ubuntu maintain security patches etc.

On that note, I'm not totally wed to Ubuntu/Debian. Is there some LTS [long-term-support] distro that's dramatically better?

Thanks. I'll look at that. I'm not sure how much help it's going to be, as there are some, it appears, significant differences between Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04. Thus, a how-to that isn't specific to 18.04 may not be that useful, as it will not have the detail needed to avoid the pitfalls of 18.04.

And while I can probably work through all the new oddities, I was hoping that someone else would have already done so and would be willing to share. 

Thanks all for the initial tips.
