Doing More With SAMBA

SAMBA Logo

My personal SAMBA needs are simple and I doubt that I will be experimenting with any of the more complex configuration possibilities, such as ADS integration, unless a project demands it.

I will continue to blog about my work with SAMBA, but if you want to deploy more complex configurations than I do then there are books on SAMBA that you can buy or download. As a first port of call I suggest that you take a look at the Books section of the SAMBA Documentation page; it looks like most of the books listed can be downloaded for free if you wish. I read through some parts of SAMBA3-ByExample and really liked the approach it took. There is also the SAMBA3-HOWTO book.

If anyone has any personal recommendations about SAMBA related books and internet forums please add comments to this entry, Thanks :-)

I will bet here is a lot of people yet who does not know the all of this documentation is available directly from the server where the samba is installed making the:

svcadm enable swat

...starting the swat service on the port 901 accesible via the web browser.

BE CAREFUL!!! here. SWAT is also the administration service so you need to login as the local machine root. The simple authentication is used here so the root's password is sent in the header of the every HTTP query ...so it can be sniffed on the local network. Use the "localhost" to avoid the problems with the root password compromising.
