    UIDs keep changing with Samba

    Hey friends, We use samba for SSO. I've been fighting issues with FreeBSD and Samba since the 12.x days and could really use some help. Currently, on all 14.0 boxes (and 13.x for that matter), I have an issue where the UIDs and GIDs aren't reliable. That's an issue with NFSv4 mounts and...

    Solved Why are there so many daemons working for the same service?

    Last Sunday, I successfully migrated to a new NAS, as the disks were starting to fail. The old NAS had 16GBs of RAM while the new one just had 8GBs. I knew that would not be enough as there are more than 25 active users. But the machine came with just 8GBs and I was told to wait for...

    Samba domain problem

    Suddenly the samba domain is unaccusable. Any idea where to look why it does not work? I think that it should be caused by DNS issues or some kind of permission issue. FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p24 (GENERIC) samba -i samba version 4.3.13 started. Copyright Andrew Tridgell and the Samba Team...

    Solved net/samba413 encryption, security/gnutls on Aarch64

    Hello. It seems security/gnutls from ports and pkg are not making use of the AES acceleration features from the ARMv8 Cryptographic extensions. This makes Samba server encryption incredibly slow. I've observed this on a Mac M1 FreeBSD 13-RELEASE virtual machine and also a RockPro64 running...
