I have been using Samba 3 for years… used it as a PDC for Windows XP to Windows 7. I principally use it to get my Unix/Linux (NIS/YP) users the ability to log in to the Windows box. I was willing to give Samba 4 a try. I wanted to use it as a PDC, now called AD/DC (Active Directory/Domain Controler), to permit login into Windows 8.x PC. So here his the story of the download of Samba 4.1.x source – it’s compilation and it’s configuration on RHEL 6.5.
