What version of Samba do I need to be able to implement as a Domain Controller with the ability to support Group Policies for Windows 7 clients on Debian Squeeze? If I could install as a .deb it would be great, but will I need to compile this?

Looks like Samba 4 only, and that version isn't in squeeze or squeeze-backports. You may be able to backport it yourself from unstable or experimental, though.

Thanks! That's kind of what I was thinking too. – muncherelli May 15 '11 at 0:15
Remember that Samba4 is alpha quality right now. – ptman May 15 '11 at 6:52
