Samba 4.2X as a member server in ActiveDirectory functional level 2016 domain

Samba - General mailing list
Can Samba 4.2.X work as a member server in a Windows server 2016
activedirectory domain?  I am using Samba member servers in Windows
2012R2 domain and would like to know if I can upgrade the domain to
functional level server 2016 without breaking Samba.

Thank you in advance for any help,

It all depends on what you mean by 'member server', if you mean, can I
provision a member server like I can provision a DC, then no, you
cannot. The only thing you can provision is a DC.

If you mean, can I set up Samba as a domain member and use it as a
member server, then yes, you should be able to.

You cannot upgrade the functional level to 2016 yet.

Thanks Rowland, sorry for the lack of clarity.  I meant can I setup
Samba 4.2.X as a domain member server so that, for example, I can grant
file system access to activedirectory principals.  From what you say, it
looks like this is possible.  Are you we should not upgrade the domain
functional level to 2016 if we have Samba machines running as domain
member servers?

You can upgrade the functional level on Windows DCs to what you require,
you just cannot do the same with Samba DCs, the maximum level at
present is 2008R2.

You should be able to use the Samba domain members with 2016, you
aren't actually altering AD (except for creating the computer account).
