On May 8, 2008, a couple of samba developers came together in a sambaXP followup meeting in Göttingen at SerNet, and the idea was born to combine the best parts of Samba3 and Samba4 to form a complete Samba Active Directory server that is also a performant file server and a print server.


The Idea

The Samba4 and Samba3 daemons should run in parallel and the tasks should be distributed among the processes. The various deamons should communicate via unix domain sockets.

One essential part for the feasibility of the project is Volker Lendecke's recent work on Samba 3 on adding the ability to delegate named pipes (dcerpc services) to external programs over unix domain sockets.


The plumbing design

The main ...


Name of the game

The codename Franky was coined for the combined Samba release.
