1.0: Configuring Samba

Samba is an ambitious project to provide solutions for file & print sharing between Linux ™ and Microsoft Windows.

If you are familiar with Samba this document may give you some ideas of how you can bundle different software packages together to produce a very reliable configuration.

We are building a fault tolerant domain controller, which provides you with the following;

Samba Configuration

- Primary Domain Controller

- Backup Domain Controller

A master domain controller, that provides authentication through the use of LDAP

A slave domain controller that can load balance client login requests which also provide redundancy through the use of a replica LDAP database.


Get the latest version of samba http://us4.samba.org/samba/ftp/samba-latest.tar.gz

It is essential that both the PDC and BDC are running the same version of samba.

[root@node1 samba]# wget http://us4.samba.org/samba/ftp/samba-latest.tar.gz

--19:28:04-- http://us4.samba.org/samba/ftp/samba-latest.tar.gz

          => `samba-latest.tar.gz'
