Re: [Linux-cluster] Samba Statefull Failover



Hi Chris..

>From reading  up on the SMB2 protocol it seems that this is
implemented within Vista and greater MS clients, but I do not seem to
be able to track support for SMB2 within SAMBA

I see that there is a Samba4AD project but cannot find rpms for RHEL
and am a bit cagey about putting a dev version onto a critical file
server.

And the Citrix (client) servers are 2003 SMBv1 anyway so that kind of
kills that anyway.

Thanks

Jay
