Assigning to you, assuming you will quickly pass it - with advisory - to QA for M8.
Fixed upstream in 1.2.0 =>
$ urpmq -i gssntlmssp
Summary : GSSAPI NTLMSSP Mechanism
Just a FYI. Sounds like developer country: General Security Services API
No idea how to test this but it updates cleanly.
I think this can be tested with SAMBA in server mode, acting as NT4 Server
The SAMBA configured as AD, may be can be used to test trying to connect from M$ desktop not joined to domain
MGA8-64 MATE on Acer Aspire 5253
No installation issues.
No previous updates, so trying to find something
# urpmq --whatrequires gssntlmssp
# urpmq --whatrequires-recursive gssntlmssp
Not very helpfull, so trying to do something along the line suggested by Mauricio, but that takes more time......
Looking for guidance found https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Setting_up_Samba_as_an_Active_Directory_Domain_Controller
Reading this, I make the conclusion that that would take me at least a day to study and try/fail cycles to get this working. I don't have that time today or tomorrow.
So, up to the higher powers to decide, but as Len I wouldn't object to an OK based on clean install and no ill effects on usual networking.
When our two most experienced QA testers both say a clean update should be enough, we should listen to them. Sorry it took me so long, guys.
