Release Announcements

This is the second release candidate of Samba 4.1.  This is *not*intended for production environments and is designed for testingpurposes only.  Please report any defects via the Samba bug reportingsystem at

Samba 4.1 will be the next version of the Samba suite and includesall the technology found in both the Samba4 series and the stable 3.xseries. The primary additional features over Samba 3.6 aresupport for the Active Directory logon protocols used by Windows 2000and above.

If you are upgrading, or looking to develop, test or deploy Samba 4.1releases candidates, you should backup all configuration and data.


Directory database replication (AD DC mode)

Directory replication has been reworked in order to improve thecorrectness and efficiency.
As a net effect of it, replication with other domain controllers witha heavily modified schema is now possible (ie. Windows 2012 DCs orother Windows DC with exchange installed) and replication didn´t failanymore in such environments.

Server-Side Copy Support

Samba 4.1.0 adds support for server-side copy operations via the SMB2FSCTL_SRV_COPYCHUNK request. Clients making use of server-side copysupport, such as Windows Server 2012, should experience considerableperformance improvements for file copy operations, as file data need nottraverse the network.
This feature is enabled by default on the smbd file server.

Btrfs Filesystem Integration

The Btrfs VFS module provided with Samba 4.1.0 further improves theperformance of server-side copy operations on shares backed by a Btrfsfilesystem. It does so by allowing multiple files to share the sameon-disk extents, avoiding the unnecessary duplication of source anddestination file data during a server-side copy operation.

This feature can be explicitly enabled on smbd shares backed by a Btrfsfilesystem with the smb.conf parameter:vfs objects = btrfs


The Samba Web Administration Tool (SWAT) has been removed.
