Re: [Samba] Functional Levels

Hello Carlos,

Seems to me that this wiki entry has not been updated to reflect the fact that Samba 4.8.x now supports schema 69 (Windows 20012 R2).

Here's a link to the same question that I had asked the list in March 2018:


Or am I missing something?

Thanks for answers.

Why do you have this option if it is not working yet?

Just out of curiosity...

I see in wiki

but dont understan....

* Functional level is included for use against Windows, but not
supported in Samba. Kerberos improvements from Windows Server 2012
and 2012 R2 are not implemented in Samba.

1° - Dont have Windows Server, samba 4(3 Dcs) is ok up(update)
FOREST_LEVEL/DOMAIN_LEVEL , 2008 to 2012R2  ? or not recommended ?
This is still a work in progress.

2° - Samba with Windows Server 2012 , not work ?
As a DC, no, as a Unix domain member, yes.
