I'm integrating a custom schema in a Samba 4.2 server. This is working quiet well (using
ldbmodify) but I wonder if it is necessary to stop the samba service before running
ldbmodify. The Samba Wiki says so, also this answer suggests to run
smbcontrol all reload-config after running
ldbmodify. On the other hand on my test systems it worked pretty well without stopping or reloading samba at all. Still I fear that I could corrupt the ldb files.
So my question is basically: Should I
- just do the
ldbmodify, followed by a
smbcontrol all reload-config?
- stop samba, run
ldbmodify, start samba?
