Product Description

Amazon Review

Samba, as all Linux users know, enables Windows machines to talk to Linux or Unix using the SMB protocol. It enables Linux to work as a file and print server and, with the latest version, a domain controller complete with password encryption support--but Samba is both a complex and subtle piece of work. A CD-ROM containing Samba 2.0.5a plus sources, docs and so on is included with Using Samba.

The authors cover the background to SMB then move on to running Samba. They then shift to Windows 98 and NT where they explain how to set both up to use Samba including the infamous encrypted password problem after NT service pack 3. They don't tell you how to turn it off in NT's Registry, though. Then they move on to the configuration file. Most of us edit a sample smb.conf file until it works, but the authors cover each option in detail, with practical examples. The most exciting areas discussed are printer support and security.

Chapter nine is essential reading--troubleshooting Samba. It discusses log files, the fault tree, net utilities, Samba utilities, documentation and newsgroups with special reference to the various log levels available. All in all, this is the book Samba users have been waiting for. It's also perfect for Windows users looking to install a cheap, robust, Linux server. --Steve Patient

Review

"This is an extensive manual on Samba and the definitive work on the subject." "This book is an essential reference for the Samba administrator, novice or expert as all possible options for each type of configuration are covered in great detail, and Samba has a great many options!" - Steven Ashley Woltering, Ping, March 2006

Format: 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. However, if you're wishing to work with Samba 3.0.x then ignore the cover of this book which says it covers it - for it doesn't. 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 book covers everything you will ever need to know about Samba, plus a bit more. It provides a comprehensive guide to for both new comer and experienced adminstrator alike.
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.
