Hi, I used the following procedure to install samba4 on a freebsd box: http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba4/HOWTO
in my current setup (which is about 4 months old) the following this do not work: - active directory groups did somehow not work as expected, but I didn't had the time to look deeper into it - updating DNS records within named, as the version freebsd comes with does not support the GSSAPI. if someone finds a way to replace builtin named with a newer version please drop me an email. - stability (didn't had the time to examine the segfaults further.) I already had contact about this issue with andrew bartlett from the developer team and they are willing to fix this issues when they have enough informations. look here (http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Franky) for informations about the 'franky' release and how to compile it. seems to be simple if you're a little bit familiar with samba. I didn't had the time to look and test, and surely won't have any until mid-august. so it would be great to hear your experiences :-) Regards, --- Mr. Olli On Mon, 2009-06-08 at 07:40 -0400, Dave wrote: > Hi, > Do you have a procedure for getting samba4 going?
