|Release||Document Status||DB Platform||Categories|
What functional and domain functional level of AD server does ScaleArc support?
ScaleArc support forest functional level and domain functional level of AD server up to Window 2008R2. Additional information on Microsoft Active Directory Domain Services (ADDS) can be found here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/understanding-active-directory-functional-levels(v=ws.10).aspx
It is very difficult to provide an estimate date of when ScaleArc supports SMB v2.0/v3.0.
Samba currently supports only the AD schema v46 that comes with 2008R2. The schema changes in AD 2012 (v56) and AD 2012R2 (v69) are what Samba has not committed as to when those AD schema will be supported. Our development team has spoken to the Samba team and SMB v2.0/v3.0 will be supported in the next full release of Samba (should be v4.3) according to their road-map.
Roadmap -> SMB2/SMB3
In terms of security vulnerability, our development team is not aware of any issues that were found on AD 2008R2 but were fixed in AD 2012/AD 2012R2. We are aware of, however, that there is improvements to Kerberos or HTML in the 2012R2 AD functional level. Please kindly let us know if you are going to use such improvements.
