Description Jelmer Vernooij 2003-04-28 00:53:35 UTC
The Samba BDC Howto needs to be updated for 3.0
Comment 1 Tim Potter 2003-04-28 13:27:06 UTC
One thing I found confusing was that you need to have 'security = user' set for
it to work.  Although this is the default, it's a big confusing not having this
mentioned at all in the docs, especially when you are editing an existing
smb.conf file.

Not only out dated but also in need of complete revision.
Planned before Beta ship.

New HOWTO is more up to date. Further updates will follow before Samba-3.0.0 ships.

originally reported against 3.0alpha23.  Bugzilla spring cleaning.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
