Ok thanks for the warning . What will not work exactly ? 

So , what is the recommended path to upgrade ? 
1) from 4.6.7 to 4.7.2 
2) then 4.7.2 to 4.8.3 
3) then 4.8.3 to 4.9.4  ?

Is there a doc on the wiki about this  ?

I assume Heimdal Kerberos is the one used in 4.6.7 . 
So I guess I will have to enforced Heimdal at compilation time (--with-system-heimdalkrb5 ?) .

An old requirement due to old XP clients. I guess I could remove it.

If I remove "browsable=no" , I can see shares netlogon and sysvol if I go to \\MY-SAMBA-DC . 
I want them to be hidden. Something wrong here ? 

Thanks.
