Description Rowland Penny 2012-08-26 14:13:48 UTC
Samba4 built on Centos 6 using list of dependances listed on https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba_4_OS_Requirements

This does not include openldap-devel

it built & installed ok, but the nmbd,smbd,winbindd fileserver would not join the AD domain

'net ads join -U Administrator@HOME.LAN' gets this:

'ADS support not compiled in'
Comment 1 Andrew Bartlett 2012-12-31 05:48:39 UTC
The issue here is that unlike the promise in BUILD_SYSTEMS.txt, we do not require this library by default, but instead silently degrade to not building with 'ads' support. 

We should instead fail, but allow a build --without-ads-support.
Comment 2 Andrew Bartlett 2017-06-27 21:53:51 UTC
Fixed in Samba 4.1 with 8d6bc9987c22248453c0acd25616eda35d6d99db
