Are there possibly missing some winbind settings (the smb.conf has
been generated by domain upgrade process).

Sorry, but I do not believe that is true:

True. The configuration works. I assume that parameters that aren't applicable to AD DC role, are just ignored, even if mentioned.

         winbind enum users = yes
         winbind enum groups = yes

The lines above should only be used for testing purposes, they serve no
other purpose.

According to the 'man smb.conf', "On large installations using winbindd(8) it may be necessary to suppress enumeration...". Orus isn't large installations (number of users and computers taken together is below 100).

         winbind nss info = rfc2307

The above line is only any use on a Unix domain member and then, only
before Samba 4.6.0

That makes sense, set it explicitle to 'template'.

         dns proxy = no

Really, on a DC that relies on DNS ?

Again, makes sense, set to 'yes'.

         tls enabled  = yes
         tls keyfile  = tls/key.pem
         tls certfile = tls/cert.pem
         tls cafile   = tls/ca.pem
         tls verify peer = no_check
         acl:search = no

They are default settings

Yes, with the mentioned certificate files taken from real-life certificate for the real-life domain name we use.

         passdb backend = tdbsam

Big mistake, you have turned off the correct password database.

I assume you are talking about ldapsam. Again, our installation isn't huge to feel the impact of the passwords backend.

Also, I might get somewhat confused by the 'classic upgrade' description, where old ldapsam was explicitly disabled in favor of switching to tdbsam.

         obey pam restrictions = yes

Useless on a DC

         unix password sync = yes

Extremely useless on a DC, you cannot have Unix users in /etc/passwd
and AD

Reasonable, set both to default.

         passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
         passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n
         pam password change = yes
         map to guest = bad user
         usershare allow guests = yes

Only of real use on a Unix domain member

Thanks, set to default.

         comment = Users profiles
         path = /srv/samba/profiles/
         browseable = No
         read only = No
         force create mode = 0600
         force directory mode = 0700
         csc policy = disable
         store dos attributes = yes
         vfs objects = acl_xattr

The above is a cut & paste from here:


The only problem is, it also tells you, just above that block on the
page, that it doesn't work on an AD DC.

Actually, I used the 'above block' to set the permissions from Windows system.

Question is, do the above settings actually conflict (I noticed no problems so far), if I do not attempt to change whatever after the mentioned permissions change has been performed?

I really appreciate your comments. Pity there are no 'typical' smb.conf examples for typical roles, such as AD DC.
