Samba4/OSX

A brief howto on installing Samba 4 alpha14 on OS X.

Dependencies

Install MacPorts using the instructions on macports.org. Once your MacPorts system is set up how you like it, type in the following command to install the dependencies.

# port install python27 python_select gnutls readline talloc && python_select python27

Compiling, Installing and Provisioning

You can use Git as in general guide, or you may prefer to use releases:

$ curl http://download.samba.org/samba/ftp/samba4/samba-4.0.0alpha14.tar.gz -o samba-4.0.0alpha14.tar.gz
$ tar -xvjf samba-4.0.0alpha14.tar.gz
$ cd samba-4.0.0alpha14/source4
$ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/local/lib/pkgconfig1
$ ./configure2
$ make
# make install
# ./setup/provision --realm=samdom.example.com --domain=SAMDOM --adminpass=SOMEPASSWORD --server-role='domain controller'

Management with Launchd

First, we need to disable the built-in Samba 3 services using LaunchCtl. You might want to disable Kerberos.

# launchctl
launchd% unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/smbd.plist 
launchd% unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/nmbd.plist
launchd% unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/edu.mit.Kerberos.krb5kdc.plist 
launchd% quit

Configuration with Server Admin

Building a PortFile

Notes

  1. This was a hack to help autotools find talloc in MacPorts. TODO: Gather more info and build a bug report, if it is still required on alpha15.
  2. Configure.developer build fails when compiling pam_winbind.c. TODO: Investigate and file a bug report.
