Most of the reason they left the AD stuff out is they are still tinkering with MIT Kerberos V server.
They refuse to migrate to Heimdal the AD stuff in samba AD includes an embedded Heimdal Kerberos V server because the MIT version is common but doesn't quite cut it yet.
I personally always use Heimdal when I create a Kerberos server because its more robust and plays nice with others because it complies with most of the RFC's. MIT Kerberos is close but its not quite there and has a lot of historical issues.
Plus I love being able to host multiple Kerberos realms in a single KDC. Also the Heimdal Perl modules are nice too.

Hi Nico,

Just out of curiosity, does "samba-tool" show up in
your spin?


Computers are like air conditioners.
They malfunction when you open windows
