In Detail

Samba is a drop-in replacement for the heart of the thousands and thousands of networks that run on Microsoft Windows domain controllers. Now with a compatible Active Directory implementation, it will definitely put its name inside every datacenter that wants a cost reduction for the Open Source solutions, without losing the security, stability, and flexibility of any resilient solution.

Implementing Samba 4 starts off with installing dependencies and building the Samba 4 software, deploying it as an Active Directory Domain Controller, and enabling the reader to understand the different roles the software can play on the network. This book looks at the Samba 4 Server roles, and breaks down the mystery and confusion that surrounds each role.

This book will take you through some clear, practical, and complete examples that will help you to take advantage of the Samba 4 Server quickly and in a simple way.

Comments about oreilly Implementing Samba 4:

Very interesting approach. Lots of scripts and command line examples that guide you through the steps of configuring a samba 4 server. A nice comparison with Windows Active Directory/Domain Controller makes it even more easy to switch form Windows Server to Linux
