comment Samba as a PDC and offline authentication
Thanks for the answer! Is is true that the MD4 hash of the credentials is stored? If so, would you happen to know why Microsoft still uses this specific hash function instead of say, the SHA-2 family?

@Zoredache The second beta (4.0.0-beta2) was released on the 10th of June 2012. Reference: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samba_%28software%29 While I have my concerns about the beta, I'm willing to test it out to see how it performs, assuming the core functionality is there...

Thanks Chris! Also, might I ask, do you happen to use Samba as a primary domain controller?

@AndrewSmith Can you please explain that a bit further? Does Samba4 not add that functionality?

@Zoredache As far as I know, some applications can integrate with active directory (i.e for authentication).
