15.1 Features and Benefits


Samba-3 can participate in Samba-to-Samba as well as in Samba-to-MS Windows NT4-style trust relationships. This imparts to Samba similar scalability as with MS Windows NT4.

Given that Samba-3 has the capability to function with a scalable backend authentication database such as LDAP, and given its ability to run in Primary as well as Backup Domain Control modes, the administrator would be well advised to consider alternatives to the use of Interdomain trusts simply because by the very nature of how this works it is fragile. That was, after all, a key reason for the development and adoption of Microsoft Active Directory.
