Do I need a dedicated Samba server or can I run the server on the client I am testing as well?
Sorry, but I could not resist to anwer this one :-)
There is no server / workstation is the linux world ...
There is only clients / servers (deamons)
So every machine is (or can be) a client and a server. All depends on the network manager...
So you would not need dedicated Samba server and you can run it from your test client machine without any problem :-)
