Samba is one of the most commonly used tools for integrating Unix and Linux systems into Windows environments. Samba provides integration into exisiting Windows environments, including Active Directory and the creation of security domains based on Samba domain controllers.
Samba can also be used to provide file and printer sharing over the Windows protocols.
In addition to this Samba is a powerful tool in the integration of Windows and Unix/Linux user accounts. Samba makes it possible for Active Directory domain users to logon to Unix or Linux servers.
Samba is a complex tool that has many different aspects to it; Active Directory integration, user account management, single-sign-on, file sharing, printer management and much more. Erion has been actively working with Samba for many years.
