3.0 out of 5 stars Great for Samba 2.2, no good for Samba 3, 26 Jan 2006
This review is from: Using Samba (Paperback)
This is a very good book for working with Samba 2.2, and if all you want are some simple shares or a basic PDC then Samba 2.2.12 is all you need.

The coverage is sparse at best, and particularly poor with respect to the fundamentals of domain control. If you're looking for a proper Samba 3 text then I'd try "The Official Samba-3 HOWTO and Reference Guide".

This is essential reading for any administrator currently using or planning to use Samba. I have not been able to find the tuning and trouble shooting information elsewhere. It even includes a CD containing a mirror of the Samba site to save you the trouble of downloading it.
