There has been a lot of progress recently in the development of the directory server capabilities of Samba4. I thought it would be worthwhile putting together a video that shows off some of those capabilities.
You can see the video here:
(if you have a fast link and can play Ogg videos, there is a high quality version too)
The video shows a few things:
- provisioning a Samba4 domain controller
- joining a Windows 2008 R2 machine as an additional domain controller for the Samba domain
- joining an additional Samba domain controller to the same domain
- adding a user and seeing changes to the user propogate between the domain controllers
PS: If you’ve having trouble playing the videos on windows, you may want to install the x264 codec. See http://sourceforge.net/projects/x264vfw/files/ for a downloadable codec pack for windows media player.
