                   Release Notes for Samba 3.0.20a
                             Sept 30, 2005

Common bugs fixed in 3.0.20a include:

  o Stability problems with winbindd.
  o Crash bugs caused by incompatibilities on 64-bit systems.
  o Missing files from directory listings on AIX servers
  o User Manager interoperability problems.

Winbind, security = domain, and Active Directory

Recent security updates for Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 have 
changed the fashion in which user and group lists can be obtained 
from domain controllers.  In short, the RPC mechanisms used by 
"security = domain" to retrieve users and groups is not compatible 
with these changes.   The "security = ads" configuration is not 
affected by the Windows protocol changes.

Samba developers are actively working to correct this problem in 
the 3.0.21 release.  In the meantime, Administrators who are unable 
to migrate to "security = ads" and must continue using "security = 
domain", can define credentials to be used by winbindd for account
enumeration by executing the following command as root.

	wbinfo --set-auth-user='DOMAINusername%password'

What happened to 3.0.15 - 3.0.19?

After some discussion it was deemed that the amount of changes 
going into the next Samba 3.0 release needed something to catch
people's attention.  Skipping several releases was chosen as 
the best solution with the least overhead.  There will be no
3.0.15 - 3.0.19 ever released.  The next production release
following 3.0.20 should be 3.0.21.

The original announcement about the version number change can 
be found in the samba mailing list archives:

Asynchronous Winbind Implementation

Winbindd has been completely rewritten in this release to support
an almost completely non-blocking, asynchronous request/reply
model.  This means that winbindd will scale much better in 
large domain environments and on high latency networks.  Neither 
the client interface nor the command line tools (i.e. wbinfo) have 
changed in their calling conventions or syntax.  However, due to 
internal structure changes, it is required (more so than normal) 
that you install the library included in this release.

Support for Microsoft Print Migrator

Samba 3.0.20 includes full support for migrating printers from 
Windows servers or other Samba servers via the Microsoft Print 
Migrator tool.  Restoring printers requires a working "add printer 
command" defined in smb.conf.  Current support also allows
administrators to create a master list of printer drivers which
can be restored in bulk on new (or existing) Samba installations.

Asynchronous IO Support

Experimental support for async IO has been added to smbd for 
certain platforms.  To enable this new feature, Samba must be 
compiled to include the --with-aio-support configure option.
In addition, the "aio read size" and "aio write size" to non-zero
values.  See the smb.conf(5) man page for more details on these 


smb.conf changes

                   Release Notes for Samba 3.0.12
                            Mar 18, 2005

Common bugs fixed in 3.0.12 include:

  o Winbind failures when using 'disable netbios = yes'
  o Failure to establish a trust relationship via 'net rpc trust 
  o Various portability & compiler issues.
  o Read only file deletion failure caused by new delete semantics 
    in Windows XP SP2 and the MS 04-044 security hotfix.
  o Error messages from shared Excel workbooks residing on Samba 
    file shares.
  o Missing files in the output of smbclient -c 'dir' when run 
    against Windows file servers.
  o Inability for Print Administrators to pause/resume/purge print 

Additional features introduced in Samba 3.0.12:

  o Performance enhancements when serving directories containing 
    large number of files.
  o MS-DFS support added to smbclient.
  o More performance improvements when using Samba/OpenLDAP based 
    DC's via the 'ldapsam:trusted=yes' option.
  o Support for the Novell NDS universal password when using the
    ldapsam passdb backend.
  o New 'net rpc trustdom {add,del}' functionality to eventually 
    replace 'smbpasswd {-a,-x} -i'.
  o New libsmbclient functionality.

Large Directory Support

Samba 3.0.12pre1 introduces a specific mechanism for dealing
with file services that frequently contain a large number of files
per directory.  Historically Samba's performance has suffered 
in such environments due to the translation from case 
insensitive lookups by Windows client to the case sensitive
storage mechanisms used by UNIX filesystems.

Configuration details along with a short HOWTO can be found at:

libsmbclient Binary Compatibility

Please note that a change has been made to the _SMBCCTX structure 
in source/include/libsmbclient.h.  This change is not backwards
compatible with applications linked against the
library from Samba 3.0.11.  However, it is compatible with all 
other Samba 3.0.x releases.  This means that it will be most likely
be necessary to recompile any applications linked against the 
3.0.11 version of the library.

                   Release Notes for Samba 3.0.11
                             Feb 5, 2005

Common bugs fixed in 3.0.11 include:

  o Crash in smbd when using CUPS printing.
  o Parsing error of other SIDs included in the user_info_3
    structure returned from domain controllers.
  o Inefficiencies when searching non-AD LDAP directories.
  o Failure to expand variables in user domain attributes
    in tdbsam and ldapsam.
  o Memory leaks.
  o Failure to retrieve certain attribute when migrating from 
    a Windows DC to a Samba DC via 'net rpc vampire'.
  o Numerous printing bugs bugs including memory 
    bloating on large/busy print servers.
  o Compatibility issues with Exchange 5.5 SP4.
  o sendfile fixes.

Additional features introduced in Samba 3.0.11:

  o Winbindd performance improvements.
  o More 'net rpc vampire' functionality.
  o Support for the Windows privilege model to assign rights
    to specific SIDs.
  o New administrative options to the 'net rpc' command.

LDAP Changes

If "ldap user suffix" or "ldap machine suffix" are defined in
smb.conf, all user-accounts must reside below the user suffix,
and all machine and inter-domain trust-accounts must be located 
below the machine suffix.  Previous Samba releases would fall 
back to searching the 'ldap suffix' in some cases.

Privilege Model

Samba 3.0.11 supports the following assignable rights

SeMachineAccountPrivilege  Add machines to domain
SePrintOperatorPrivilege   Manage printers
SeAddUsersPrivilege        Add users and groups to the domain
SeRemoteShutdownPrivilege  Force shutdown from a remote system
SeDiskOperatorPrivilege    Manage disk shares

These rights can be assigned to arbitrary users or groups
via the 'net rpc rights grant/revoke' command.  More details
of Samba's privilege implementation can be found in the 


Changes since 3.0.10

                   Release Notes for Samba 3.0.8
                             Nov 7, 2004

Common bugs fixed in 3.0.8 include:

  o Compile fixes for HP-UX
  o Fixes for the printer publishing code used when joined to 
    an AD domain.
  o Incompatibilities with file system quotas.
  o Several bugs in the spoolss printing code and print system 
  o Inconsistencies in the username map functionality when 
    configured on domain member servers.
  o Various compile warnings and errors on various platforms.
  o Fixes for kerberos interoperability with Windows 200x 
    domains when using DES keys.
  o Fix for CAN-2004-0930 -- smbd remote DoS vulnerability.
  o Fix for CAN-2004-0882 -- possible buffer overrun in smbd.

New features included in the 3.0.8 release are:

  o New migration functionality added the the net tool
    for files/directories, printers, and shares.
  o New experimental idmap backend for assigning uids/gids
    directly based on the user/group RID when acting as a
    member of single domain without any trusts.
  o Additional printer migration support for XP/2003 platforms.

Change in Winbindd Behavior

All usernames returned by winbindd are now converted to lower 
case for better consistency.  This means any winbind installation
relying on the winbind username will need to rename existing 
directories and/or files based on the username (%u and %U) to lower 
case (e.g. mv $name `echo $name | tr '[A-Z]' '[a-z]'`).  This may 
include mail spool files, home directories, valid user lines in 
smb.conf, etc....

Change in Username Map

Previous Samba releases would only support reading the fully qualified 
username (e.g. DOMAINuser) from the username map when performing a 
kerberos login from a client.  However, when looking up a map 
entry for a user authenticated by NTLM[SSP], only the login name would be
used for matches.  This resulted in inconsistent behavior sometimes
even on the same server.

Samba 3.0.8 obeys the following rules when applying the username
map functionality:

  * When performing local authentication, the username map is 
    applied to the login name before attempting to authenticate 
    the connection.
  * When relying upon a external domain controller for validating
    authentication requests, smbd will apply the username map 
    to the fully qualified username (i.e. DOMAINuser) only
    after the user has been successfully authenticated.


Changes since 3.0.7

smb.conf changes
    Parameter Name              	Action
    --------------              	------
    force printername			New
    sendfile				disabled by default


o   Jeremy Allison 
    * Ensure extended security bit is on only if we negotiated 
      extended security.
    * Simplify statcache to use an in-memory tdb. 
    * If you're selecting a hash algorithm for tdb, you need 
      to do it at open time.
    * Removed old dir caching code - not being used now we 
      have the statcache anyway.
    * Simplify the mangle hash code to use an in-memory tdb.
    * Merge iconv changes from Samba 4 branch.
    * Fix parsing of names ending in dot and a few other error 
    * BUG 1667: Smbpasswd file could be left locked on some 
      error exits.
    * Fixes for smbclient tar functionality.
    * BUG 1743: Fix logic bug the deferred open code.
    * Don't try to set security descriptors on shares where 
      this has been turned off.
    * Return correct error codes on old SEARCH call.
    * Ensure we set errno = E2BIG when we overflow in the 
      fast-path character conversion code.
    * Fix the roundup problem (returning 1mb roundup) for 
      non-Windows clients.
    * Added 'stat' command to smbclient to exercise the 
      UNIX_FILE_BASIC info level.
    * Fix bug where we could incorrectly set sparse attribute.
    * Fix incorrect locks/unlocks in tdb_lockkeys()/tdb_unlockkeys()
      (reported by Taj Khattra ).
    * Remove locked keys tdb code.
    * BUG 1886: Prevent delete on close being set for readonly files 
      (and return the correct error code).
    * Ensure we pass most of the new lock tests except for the cancel 
      lock which is yet to be added (merged from Samba 4 branch).
    * BUG 1947: Fix incorrect use of getpwnam() etc. interface.
    * BUG 1956: Ensure errno is saved and restored consistently on a 
    * BUG 1651: Adapted patch from Nalin Dahyabhai for ensuring 
      that all of the appropriate service principal names are set 
      upon joining an AD domain.
    * Fix the correct use of resume name in the trans2 code.
    * BUG 1717: Adapted patch from Nalin Dahyabhai to detect the
      correct salt used when generated the DES key after joining an 
      AD domain.
    * Enhanced krb5 detection routines in the autoconf scripts.

o   Andrew Bartlett 
    * Avoid changing the machine account password in the passdb 
      backend, when it has 'already been changed'.  This occurs 
      in situations where the secure channel between the workstation 
      and the DC breaks down, such as occurred in the MS04-11 
      security patch.
    * Fix utility name in error message in ntlm_auth.
    * Fix NTLMv2 for use with pam_winbind.
    * Remove conversion to and from UTF8 on the winbind pipe.

    * Use sys_getgroups() rather than scanning all groups 
      when generating SAMR replies.

o   Igor Belyi 
    * Ensure pdb user is deleted first before deleting UNIX 
      user (LDAP backend needs this ordering).

o   Cornelio Bondad Jr 
    * Fix core dump in 'net rpc vampire'.

o   Vince Brimhall 
    * Make ldapsam_compat robust against NULL attributes.

o   Gerald Carter

      by NGROUPS_MAX.
    * BUG 1519: Match Windows 2000 behavior when opening a 
      printer using a servername in the form of an IP address or 
      DNS name.
    * BUG 1907: remove extra slashes from the printer name in 
    * Fix standard_sub_snum() to use the current user's gid.
    * Fix background queue update bug (based on Volker's initial work 
      in 3.1.0).
    * Add 'force printername' service parameter for people that want 
      to enforce printername == sharename for spoolss printing.
    * Ensure consistent usage of the username map.  Use the fully 
      qualified DOMAINuser format for 'security = domain|ads' and 
      apply after authentication has succeeded.
    * Cosmetic fix for getent output -- lowercase the username only 
      and not the complete domainusername string.
    * Packaging fixes for Solaris, Redhat, & Fedora.

o   Sean Chandler 
    * Fix memlieak in cliconnect.c.

o   Darren Chew

    * Fix deadlock loop in winbind's required_membership_sid
    * Bring the same level of "required_membership"-functionality 
      that ntlm_auth uses, to pam_winbindd as well.
    * Prevent "net lookup kdc" from seg-faulting when
      using our own implementation of krb5_lookup_kdc with 
    * Adding getprinter level 7 to rpcclient.
    * Support migrating printers|shares|files from Server A 
      to Server B while running the net-command on client C.
    * Fixed krb5_krbhost_get_addrinfo()-parameters and make 
      failure of this call non-critical (Thanks to Love @ Heimdal
      for the explanation and patch).
    * Fix typos in net's usage-output.

      and using extended characters (Thanks to Uwe Morgenroth from CC 
      Compunet and Volker).
    * Make 'password history'-behavior in ldapsam more consistent. 
    * Adding "Windows x64" as architecture string and driverdir "x64" 
      for the 64bit AMD platform.
    * BUG 1343: Readd WKGUID-binding to match the correct default-
      locations of new User-, Group- and Machine-Accounts in Active
