I need to use samba 4 server, but I need to install a server with a dns service (bind9.8) in other server.
Is that possible? If yes, There is any documentation for it?
Of course its possible, perhaps your doubt goes for the dns that samba uses (?), AFAIK sambas name resolution works separately from bind unless you want to simulate an AD.
What is the advantage, if any, of running one's own DNS server? Surely the link between domain name and IP address must already have been established?
I want to understand trade-off between using local v/s google DNS.
I'd like to change from Samba 3.0.33 to 3.6.6. Reason: WINDOWS 7 and PDC
Is something to consider when changing (config-Files or so on)? Have I to uninstall Samba 3.0.33 before or just run an update?
