Introduction

The following is a distribution-specific list of commands to install Samba. There is a distinct difference between installing Samba, and provisioning/configuring of Samba. This page covers the installation-only, and is intended to be a short detour away from Setting up Samba as an Active Directory Domain Controller page.

Note, that the list of commands is neither provided nor actively verified by the Samba team. If you see any missing packages or incorrect package names, please update the command or send the information to the Samba mailing list.

As a reminder, the following information about the domain and domain controller applies to these examples:

  • Hostname = DC1
  • DC local IP Address = 10.99.0.1
  • Authentication Domain = SAMDOM.EXAMPLE.COM
  • Top level Domain = EXAMPLE.COM


Red Hat Enterprise Linux / CentOS / Scientific Linux

Version 7 and 8

# yum install samba

The samba package only supports Samba as a domain member and NT4 PDC or BDC. Red Hat does not provide packages for running Samba as an AD DC. As an alternative:

  • Build Samba. For details, see Build Samba from Source.
  • Use 3rd-party packages with AD support from a trusted source.

Version 6

# yum install samba4

The samba4 package only supports Samba as a domain member and NT4 PDC or BDC. Red Hat does not provide packages for running Samba as an AD DC. As an alternative:

  • Build Samba. For details, see Build Samba from Source.
  • Use 3rd-party packages with AD support from a trusted source.


Debian/Ubuntu

# apt-get install acl attr samba samba-dsdb-modules samba-vfs-modules winbind libpam-winbind libnss-winbind krb5-config krb5-user dnsutils
  • Note1: A DC only requires the libpam-winbind and libnss-winbind packages if your AD users will login to the DC.
  • Note2: A samba DC usually serves as a domain NTP server, to do this you will also need to install an NTP server, either ntp or chrony. However is it not explicitly necessary for domain-joined machines to share a common NTP server, though it is best practice. If you do not wish to install and maintain an NTP server, you can define a Group Policy Object that synchronizes workstations with time.windows.com post installation. If you do want to install either package, they can be installed via:
# apt-get install ntp

Or

# apt-get install chrony

For details about time synchronization, see Time Synchronization.


FreeBSD

# pkg install net/samba44

Note: If you want to use the idmap_ad Winbind back end (on e.g. an AD Member Server), you have to build the port by hand and select the EXP_MODULES configuration option!

SUSE Linux Enterprise / openSUSE

# zypper install samba samba-winbind samba-ad-dc
