Posted on 2011-10-28

We have Windows 2008 R2 DC's setup last week.
 All Win 2003 Dc's were decommed and Win 2008 R2 DC's were put in environemnt.
 After this, application team (UNIX based) who were using SAMBA app to communicate with DC's had issues and had error connecting / authneticating new DC's.
 App team is using Samba version 3.0.2.
 Need to address this issue on URGENT basis.
 Can we do this without upgrading SAMBA app to latest version?
 Any help / links / suggestions would be highly appreciated.
