SerNet provides new sets of SAMBA+ 4.9.3, 4.8.7 and 4.7.12 packages. The packages are available for various SUSE and Red Hat platforms as well as for Debian GNU/Linux and Ubuntu.
The recent security releases introduced a regression bug which affects the Samba DNS server. The DNS server limits the number of records in an answer to 20 records. This can break the functionality in setups with more than 20 Domain Controllers. The new packages solve this issue. Please update affected systems.
These packages also introduce one novelty: As of now, SAMBA+ is also available for Oracle Linux!
SAMBA+ packages and all later versions are available as software subscription. They can be purchased at the SAMBA+ shop, detailed information and prices are listed at https://shop.samba.plus. The subscriptions are managed at our platform OPOSSO (https://oposso.samba.plus). Users can activate their subscriptions here and manage access credentials. The new SAMBA+ packages are included in existing subscriptions.
