Solaris Samba 4.9.x support on Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4

We are happy to announce the support of Samba Version 4.9.x on Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4.

Solaris Cluster HA for Samba enables the Solaris Cluster software to manage Samba by providing components to perform the orderly startup, shutdown, and fault monitoring of Samba within the global zone or a zone cluster.

HA for Samba can be used only with Samba software that is packaged with Oracle Solaris 11 software.

The HA for Samba data service consists of the components smbd, nmbd, and winbindd.

  • The smbd and optional nmbd components are created within a single resource. This is referred to as the Samba instance or Samba resource.
  • The winbindd component is created as a separate resource. This is referred to as the winbind instance or winbind resource.

For detailed information on installing and configuring the high availability data service for Samba, refer to the Oracle Solaris Cluster Data Service for Samba Guide
