The Official Samba-3 HOWTO and Reference Guide, 2nd Edition

Customer Reviews:

Great technical reference for advanced use of Samba

By Harold McFarland - September 17, 2005

This is not an introduction to Samba but a technical reference written by those who know it best - the Samba Team. If you already know something about Samba then this is the place you will find very detailed explanations of all the internal and external capabilities of Samba-3.0.11 and higher. While it is easy enough to find information on how to set Samba up as a file and print server, how to use its other features is harder information to come by. This book details setting up Samba as a domain controller, backup domain controller, or domain member, network browsing, access controls, record locking, securing Samba, interdomain trusts, printing support, user profiles, administration, monitoring, and tuning. A voluminous tome, most people will not be inclined to read through it but would more likely read the sections relevant to their current needs and the book is organized so that it is easy to use that way. A true technical reference it has everything you are likely to ever want... read more

For that purpose, one of the authors has written another book [1] that has many sample real-life configurations, and is like the quick start guides that accompany consumer products. This book is similar to a detailed user's guide, for administrators who use Samba every day.

The book has six parts, with Part 1 discussing general installation. Part 2 discusses server configuration issues, such as various server types, domain control, and domain membership. This... read more
