  20. <strong>A3.2 Fedora Core 4 </strong><br>
  21. (last update: 6 March 2006)
  22. <p>FC4 comes with samba v3.0.14a. The samba project released v3.0.20 on 20 August 2005. Here is a quote from the v3.0.20 release note about winbind.</p>
  23. <blockquote>
  24. <p>-- quote --<br>
  25. Winbindd has been completely rewritten in this release to support
  26. an almost completely non-blocking, asynchronous request/reply
  27. model. This means that winbindd will scale much better in
  28. large domain environments and on high latency networks.<br>
  29. -- quote --

  31. </blockquote>
  32. <p>It is highly recommended to upgrade samba to v3.0.20 or above. The latest samba v3.0.21c rpms for FC4 can be found in <a href="http://us5.samba.org/samba/ftp/Binary_Packages/Fedora/RPMS/i386/core/4/">here</a>. Download a copy and then update samba with command &quot;rpm -Uvh samba*.rpm&quot;.</p>
  33. <p>Please go to <a href="poptop_ads_howto_5.htm#smbconf">Section 9.1</a> to continue the Samba configuration.</p>
  34. <p><strong>Note: </strong>
  35. Samba v3.0.21 has a bug on the oplock code. Avoid this version. Use v3.0.21a or above. </p>
