Summary0022241: Samba updated to 4.8.3 - Samba / AD expert required

samba rebased to version 4.8.3
The samba packages have been upgraded to upstream version 4.8.3, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version:

    The smbd service no longer queries user and group information from Active Directory domain controllers and NT4 primary domain controllers directly. Installations with the security parameter set to ads or domain now require that the winbindd service is running.
    The dependency on global lists of trusted domains within the winbindd process has been reduced. For installations that do not require the global list, set the winbind scan trusted domains parameter in the /etc/samba/smb.conf file to no. For more information, see the parameter's description in the smb.conf(5) man page.
    The trust properties displayed in the output of the wbinfo -m --verbose command have been changed to correctly reflect the status of the system where the command is executed.
    Authentication from users of a one-way trust now works correctly when using the idmap_rid and idmap_autorid ID mapping back ends.

Samba automatically updates its tdb database files when the smbd, nmbd, or winbind daemon starts. Back up the databases files before starting Samba. Note that Red Hat does not support downgrading tdb database files.
For more information about notable changes, read the upstream release notes before updating: https://www.samba.org/samba/history/samba-4.8.0.html. [^] (BZ#1558560)
