Hello this is my page ! I'm Matthieu Patou, you can reach me on #samba-technical with the nick ekacnet.
I'm now a Samba team member (yeah !) since May 2010.
I try to keep the fantasy page up to date with what I'll try to do in the short term.
What I've done / For what you can blame me !
- Upgradeprovsion, a script to update your running provision to adapt to the perpetual changes we do in the Samba Domain controller code (aka Samba4 so far).
- DFS referral resolution, so that multi DC setup can work correctly with newer client when accessing sysvol and netlogon share
- Protected storage, a protocol to decrypt selected user secrets with DCs private key, used mainly for certificates
- Dirsync, an LDAP control used for polling changes
- Pseudobacklinks, a technical artifact so that all attributes with DN syntax are updated when the targeted DN change its name, allow moving DC between sites
Short term jobs
Medium term jobs
- File Replication Service
- Change indexing
For the moment LDB use DN as entries of a index, as DN can be quite long we use a lot of space and memory for this. The idea is to use instead GUID at least in indexes.
Currently an indexed search is done like this:
