Description Eric Desgranges 2010-04-10 20:09:43 UTC
Renaming "Defaut-First-Site-Name" is not allowed in Samba4 (because the string is hard-coded in some places -- Andrew Bartlett, technical mailing list). It's however too tempting to do it on the Remote Administration Tools by Microsoft and as a result breaks the full installation.
Comment 1 Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2010-04-11 03:15:28 UTC
This is a feature request. Be aware that this will take longer to fix. It will require full site support in s4.
Comment 2 Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2010-04-27 03:04:18 UTC
Should be fixed in "master".
Comment 3 Andrew Bartlett 2010-04-27 03:14:08 UTC
This is still an open issue, as any movement of a samba server between sites still requires additional work to update the rootDSE.

But we are *much* closer. 
Comment 4 Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2010-10-16 12:54:55 UTC
Well, the situation has improved - but the "dsServiceName" attribute (NTDS Settings DN) has still to be changed manually.
This is due to the fact that it's essential on the start of s4's DSDB library where we still cannot perform searches/lookups. So it is a bit hard to make it dynamic too.
Comment 5 Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2012-03-27 16:24:31 UTC
This should have been fixed by the "dsServiceName" attribute in GUID format.
