Description Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2009-08-01 13:37:45 UTC
I file this bug to help keeping track of a provision update script. I think that it is a *very* important feature for SAMBA 4 to allow a bigger distribution in production environments.
Comment 1 Matthieu Patou 2009-08-01 15:45:57 UTC
As said more than once I am Ok to do it, I have a very small startup.
My idea is the following:
* look into an exsting (and running provision) for important parameter (realm, domain guid, ...)
* provision a new env 
* run a diff on every ldb between the existing and the new one
* create upate ldif to upgrade the running version

This script will cover some needs (ie like upgrading from old schema to new schema or updating security descriptor) but not all for sure (ie. extended dn because they per object and lot of them do not exists in the initial provision).

Is there any comment on my proposal ?

Yeah, do you have a testable copy or would you like to post the source somewhere? So we could be able to review and help to enhance it.

Not yet !

I'll post here when it will be available
Comment 4 Andrew Bartlett 2009-11-23 22:33:07 UTC
The script has been included, but while it does great things, it needs much more work to be both brought up to date, and to be more general (still has some hard-coded paths in it). 
Comment 5 Matthieu Patou 2009-11-24 02:08:43 UTC
I definitely not finished, I'll try to push harder on something better very soon.

Don't zap !

We have it now in "master". Maybe it isn't that perfect yet, but it has been developed. So I close this remainder bug.
