Install Samba 4 Debian Squeeze Iso

Besides including everything provided by the fourth updateof Debian Squeeze (6.0.4), this new release of DebianEdu introduces some interesting improvements, including:replacement of LWAT with GOsa as the LDAP administration interface;updated artwork and new Debian Edu / Skolelinux logo; a new LXDE desktop option,in addition to KDE (default) and GNOME (LXDE and GNOME are available onlywith the CD installation method); faster LTSP client boot;improved handing of removable media on thin clients; a new roaming workstationprofile for laptops; full Samba NT4 domain support for Windows XP/Vista/7; etc.The Debian Edu Team has also worked intensively on the documentation,improving and extending the manual which is now fully translated toGerman, French and Italian, while partial translations exist forDanish, Norwegian Bokmål and Spanish.The installation process has also been improved, integrating the newversion of debian-installer, allowing copying of ISOimages to USB sticks and changing partitioning for Standalone installsto have a separate /home and no /usr.

Install Samba 4 Debian Squeeze Iso

The security parameter in the [global] section in the /etc/samba/smb.conf file manages how Samba authenticates users that are connecting to the service. Depending on the mode you install Samba in, the parameter must be set to different values:

To be able to upload and preconfigure printer drivers, a user or a group needs to have the SePrintOperatorPrivilege privilege granted. A user must be added into the printadmin group. Red Hat Enterprise Linux automatically creates this group when you install the samba package. The printadmin group gets assigned the lowest available dynamic system GID that is lower than 1000.

After all the samba is installed, you need to configure the samba share directory with proper permissions and ownership, so that it is going to be shared with all client machines in the same local network.

6. After the Samba installation, run the following command to stop and disable services that the Samba Active Directory server does not require smbd, nmbd, and winbind. The server only needs the samba-ac-dc to serve as Active Directory and domain controller.

The smbclient package provides a libnss driver to resolve NetBIOS host names. To use it, install it along with the samba package (which provides the winbindd daemon), start/enable winbind.service and add wins to the hosts line in nsswitch.conf(5):

--without-ad-dc: Disable Active Directory Domain Controller functionality. See Setup a Samba Active Directory Domain Controller for detailed information. Remove this switch if you've installed the Python modules needed for ADS support. Note that BLFS does not provide a samba bootscript for an Active Directory domain controller.

install -v -m644 ../examples/smb.conf.default /etc/samba: This copies a default smb.conf file into /etc/samba. This sample configuration will not work until you copy it to /etc/samba/smb.conf and make the appropriate changes for your installation. See the configuration section for minimum values which must be set.

Due to the complexity and the many various uses for Samba, complete configuration for all the package's capabilities is well beyond the scope of the BLFS book. This section provides instructions to configure the /etc/samba/smb.conf file for two common scenarios. The complete contents of /etc/samba/smb.conf will depend on the purpose of Samba installation.

Since the smbd and nmbd daemons are needed in this case, install the samba bootscript. Be sure to run smbpasswd (with the -a option to add users) to enable and set passwords for all accounts that need Samba access. Using the default Samba passdb backend, any user you attempt to add will also be required to exist in the /etc/passwd file.

The default Samba installation uses the nobody user for guest access to the server. This can be overridden by setting the guest account = parameter in the /etc/samba/smb.conf file. If you utilize the guest account = parameter, ensure this user exists in the /etc/passwd file.

If you intend to use Samba as a server, install samba. The main configuration file for Samba is /etc/samba/smb.conf. This file can be divided into two logical parts. The [global] section contains the central and global settings. The following default sections contain the individual file and printer shares:

Samba sets up network shares for chosen Unix directories (including all contained subdirectories). These appear to Microsoft Windows users as normal Windows folders accessible via the network. Unix users can either mount the shares directly as part of their file structure using the mount.cifs command or, alternatively, can use a utility, smbclient (libsmb) installed with Samba to read the shares with a similar interface to a standard command line FTP program. Each directory can have different access privileges overlaid on top of the normal Unix file protections. For example: home directories would have read/write access for all known users, allowing each to access their own files. However they would still not have access to the files of others unless that permission would normally exist. Note that the netlogon share, typically distributed as a read only share from /etc/samba/netlogon, is the logon directory for user logon scripts.

Samba configuration is achieved by editing a single file (typically installed as /etc/smb.conf or /etc/samba/smb.conf). Samba can also provide user logon scripts and group policy implementation through poledit.
