    One of my team got the following response from Support at Clearcenter today...

    "We just had a Innovation conference in Toronto with the ClearOS development team there and the new direction that was decided is with a docker-based method for Samba directory. There are a couple of reasons for that; one of them being security isolation and the other is being able to partition the directory in a way that is more scalable. We will have further guidance by Monday, June 11."


    Light at the end of the tunnel hopefully...... Dev's, how can we assist with this?....
    Cheers..... Andy

    No word for the moment from the devs.

    From what I've read, it would be more than just installing Samba 4. If Samba is running as AD Domain Controller it takes over LDAP completely and also insists on using its own DNS or BIND. This could mess with any programs using LDAP extensions. The DNS bit would mean changes to the Webconfig and I don't know how it would play with products like Gateway Management which are DNS based services. There is a Samba Directory (beta) app out there, but it is very much a beta and does not support a lot of apps. I think it also became a little unstable towards the end of last year as well.

    Hi Nick,

    Thanks for the "heads-up" .... it saved me a lot of time this week when I ran into issues joining some new Windows 10 clients to one of my customers domains. Luckily, we were able to roll these back (remotely) to an earlier build (they'd been diligently updated prior to joining the domain), but this is going to be a major headache when PC's ship with an 1803 build pre-installed, and the only option will be to send someone to site to flatten and rebuild with a 1709 ISO.

    Any word from the Dev's on moving forward with Samba 4 AD...... ?

    Cheers.... Andy
