[openchange]Fwd: [ANNOUNCE] Samba 4.0.0alpha9


----------  Forwarded Message  ----------

Subject: [ANNOUNCE] Samba 4.0.0alpha9
Date: Tuesday 01 December 2009
From: Andrew Bartlett <abartlet <at> samba.org>
To: samba-announce <at> lists.samba.org

We are proud to a announce another alpha release of Samba 4. 

What's new in Samba 4 alpha9
============================

Samba 4 is the ambitious next version of the Samba suite that is being
developed in parallel to the stable 3.0 series. The main emphasis in
this branch is support for the Active Directory logon protocols used
by Windows 2000 and above.

Samba4 alpha9 follows on from the alpha release series we have been
publishing since September 2007

WARNINGS
========

Samba4 alpha9 is not a final Samba release.  That is more a reference
to Samba4's lack of the features we expect you will need than a
statement of code quality, but clearly it hasn't seen a broad
deployment yet.  If you were to upgrade Samba3 (or indeed Windows) to
Samba4, you would find many things work, but that other key features
you may have relied on simply are not there yet.

Re: [openchange]Fwd: [ANNOUNCE] Samba 4.0.0alpha9

I tried to build openchange trunk code (r1565) with Samba 4 alapha9 on 
my solaris x86 box.  I got following error:

Compiling libmapiadmin/mapiadmin_user.c with -fPIC
"libmapiadmin/mapiadmin_user.c", line 229: prototype mismatch: 8 args 
passed, 7 expected

The ldb_wrap_connect() interface is changed in alapha9.  Do we have a 
patch for this changing?

Thanks

Brian

I've previously posted patches at:
http://mailman.openchange.org/pipermail/devel/2009-November/001375.html
I think they should be OK for the alpha9 tarball, but I didn't get any testing 
done today.

These (or equivalent updated patches) will get applied to openchange trunk 
when I've got the final issue (changes to mapiproxy/dcesrv_mapiproxy.c) sorted 
out. 

Do you have spec files for samba9 dependencies on OpenSolaris? I tried to build 
using the spec files for alpha7 with alpha8 tarballs, but failed at the samba4 
part - the other dependencies like talloc and tdb were OK.

[openchange]imap proxy

hi

i'm working for a company that uses exchange as a corporate
mailserver. unfortunately the admin boneheads don't allow me to
connect via imap. however, i managed to create connectivity via
openexchange (libmapi). i can list all my folders, retrieve mails and
so on. the ideal solution for me however would be to use imap.

if i could have something like a local imap2mapi proxy this would
solve my problem. the proxy would have to use libmapi as backend and
translate imap commands to mapi (vice versa).

has this been discussed before? is something like that planed? are
there better ways or other solutions available to my problem?

any input is gratefully appreciated.

[openchange]OpenChange trunk and Samba4 Alpha9

Hi List,

Just a quick word to let you know I've committed a patch in trunk to
make openchange samba4-alpha9 compliant.

I've quickly ran mapiproxy with downgrade module only to check whether
the assoc_group id patch was working properly. Outlook doesn't drop any
connections, so looks like we have a proper fix here.

I've also ran mapitest to check whether we had any failure and it looks
all good: 118 tests passing
          1 failure with NSPI-GETTEMPLATEINFO

However this failed test has no incidence and it is a known issue  due
to lack of MS documentation regarding this particular NSPI call.

Brad, I've forced compilation on buildbot, but it looks like it still
kept samba4-alpha8 rather than the nex mandatory alpha9. Can you update
this when you have time?

Cheers,
Julien.

Sigh ... the project is named openchange not openexchange ;-)

Yes it has. 

Unfortunately we always/still come to the same answer:
        - this tool doesn't currently exist in openchange trunk /
        branches
        - we truly lack developers and/or available time to handle this
        particular development at the moment

However, there has been efforts in the past (GSoC 2008) to integrate
OpenChange to fetchmail:
http://mknod.org/svn/fetchmail/branches/BRANCH_MAPI/

Indeed. Maybe exchange2mbox would better fit you immediate needs. It is
bi-directional and I've heard some end-users were coupling it with
Thunderbird for mail purposes: read/delete.

This would obviously be a flat listing with no way to manage folders or
sending e-mails - only convenient for reading.

I'm not sure which current messaging client you're using daily, but
maybe evolution-mapi would better fit your needs? You would have GUI for
e-mail + calendaring + possibility to integrate other accounts such as
IMAP etc.

Sandra, please let me know if developers contacted you. We (openchange)
would be happy to create a branch (public dev environment) if needed for
any developer you may engage.

In the meantime, I'll ask my contacts and students I work with if
someone is interested.

Cheers,
Julien.

Re: [openchange]imap proxy

Guten Abend Sandra,

I've been in the same situation and I compiled this: http://q.freeshell.org/ex2md

It served me very well until the admin boneheads locked up the firewall so that only corporate supplied machines with corporate Winblows and corporate AV and corporate FW and corporate spyware that verifies the aforementioned can get through.
