Samba versions supporting Windows7 Domain Logon

Support for Windows 7 using Samba Domain Controllers has been added to the following versions:

  • Samba 3.4
  • Samba 3.3

We successfully tested Windows 7 Ultimate (Build 2600) with Samba 3.4.0 and Samba 3.3.7.

Windows 7 Registry settings

There are currently two registry settings required to be added on the Windows 7 client prior to joining a Samba Domain. These are:

            DWORD  DomainCompatibilityMode = 1
            DWORD  DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0

Samba also ships with a registry patchfile that users can apply directly. The patchfile can be found in recent Samba sourcecode: $SOURCE/docs-xml/registry/Win7_Samba3DomainMember.reg or in Samba Bugzilla here:

Make sure to either reboot Windows 7 or restart the LanmanWorkstation service after setting these entries.

You will receive one warning about DNS domain name configuration after the join has succeeded:

   "Changing the Primary Domain DNS name of this computer to "" failed.
    The name will remain "MYDOM".  The error was:

    The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted"

This warning can be ignored or silenced with setting other registry keys.

Do not edit any other registry parameters (NETLOGON) that have been seen in the wild. If you have already modified your Windows 7 registry, please make sure to reset the keys to their default values.

If you have changed the NETLOGON Parameters, make sure and turn them back to ‘1’ as shown below:

           DWORD  RequireSignOrSeal = 1
           DWORD  RequireStrongKey = 1

Samba e Win 2003

Utilizzare samba su un server linux per gestire un domino Nt può sembrare un vantaggio e un risparmio di soldi e in infetti lo è!
Attenzione però agli aggiornamenti dei client e degli altri server windows poichè bisogna tenere sempre conto che si devono interfacciare con samba.
A proposito di windows 2003 è consigliato aver installato samba versione 3.14a per installare il SP1 di microsoft poichè l’aggiornamento modifica le policy e solo con la versione 3.14a di samba sono stati introdotti aggiornamenti specifici per questo service pack.
Quindi buon aggiornamento a tutti….

Vi riporto alcune note tecniche della versione:

Release Notes for Samba 3.0.14a
Apr 15, 2005

This is the latest stable release of Samba. This is the version
that production Samba servers should be running for all current
bug-fixes. Please read the following important changes in this

Common bugs fixed in 3.0.14a include:

o Compatibility issues between Winbind and Windows 2003 SP1
domain controllers (*2k3sp1*).
o MS-DFS errors with Windows XP SP2 clients.
o High CPU loads caused by infinite loops in the FindNext()
server code.
o Invalid SMB_ASSERT() which caused smbd to panic on ACL’d
