This removes some confusion that came to light in how well Samba 4.0 supports being a domain member.  The new text is longer, but much clearer (I hope).

I think this is good.
One thing that is not 100% clear to me:
Does this imply that OpenChange can only be run with the ntvfs file server?
Comment 2 Michael Adam 2013-03-11 23:03:43 UTC
And one more question:
Should this also be added to master?
Comment 3 Andrew Bartlett 2013-03-11 23:11:03 UTC
We don't seem to be mirroring WHATSNEW in master, that's why didn't patch it there first. 

In terms of Openchange, it needs the 'samba' binary, because it is a plugin for that dce/rpc server.  It doesn't use the file server at all. 

The four use cases I know of that use the 'domain member' support inn 'samba' are:
 - openchange
 - cifs proxy
 - dce/rpc proxy
 - ntvfs file server

alternative patch

Hi Andrew,

that explains it. I was first not certain how to group some of the parts.

I think it also make sense to mention domain member support not only under "Known Issues" but  in a section of its own. Hence I have attached an alternative proposed patch.

Thanks - Michael

Oh, you already ACKed my alternative patch. - Thanks!
So I'll obsolete the first patch and hand the but over to Karolin...
