Samba 4.x backwards compatibility with Samba 3.x?

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, I have a question for those of you who are already familiar with Samba 4.x. I understand this new major release comes with many changes under the hood. Now I wonder if I can still configure it as simply as 3.x. Here's a real-life example of what I consider a "simple" configuration, the one running on my office server (nestor), with two different shares, one public, one confidential (e. g. needing authentication): Code: # /etc/samba/smb.conf [global] workgroup = WORKGROUP domain master = yes netbios name = NESTOR server string = Serveur de fichiers et d'impression NESTOR dns (HowTos)
