Samba 3.0.25b Available for Download


The Samba Team has come through with another production release for Samba 3.025, This is the third production release of the Samba 3.0.25 code base and is the version that servers should be run for for all current bug fixes.

Major bug fixes included in Samba 3.0.25b are:

  • Offline caching of files with Windows XP/Vista clients.
  • Improper cleanup of expired or invalid byte range locks on files.
  • Crashes is idmap_ldap and idmap_rid.

Changes to ‘net idmap dump’:

A change in command line syntax and behavior was introduced in the
3.0.25 release series where the command

$ net idmap dump /…/path/to/idmap.tdb

would overwrite the tdb instead of dumping its contents to standard output as was the case in releases prior to Samba 3.0.25. The changed has been reverted in 3.0.25b and the semantics from 3.0.24 and earlier releases have been restored.

The uncompressed tarballs and patch files have been signed using GnuPG (ID 6568B7EA). The source code can be downloaded


The release notes are available online at:
