Question Linux PDC using Samba with NT 4 servedr BDC ???


Hello all,

Can anyone point me to a good reference on how to set up samba on a linux box to act as a PDC and then set up windows NT 4 server as a BDC.

The reason for working this way is because inkjet printers don't seem to like being on a linux print server and so I plan to use a windows NT 4 server as a BDC running print services.

I can't find any references to this in any of the manuals of online tutorials that I've come across ....

I'd be greatful for any assistance on this matter.

You could try with the Samba HOWTO Collection (sorry this link is for my closest mirror, you may want to go in manually, it's in the documentation section).

This will explain how to set samba up as a PDC. I know it is a problem to get samba working as a BDC with an NT PDC so the reverse may also be true.

What sort of printer problems are you having? they may be easier to fix!

Its not supported yet. The SAM sychronisation methods are different on SAMBA and Windows. Read this while trawling though www.samba.org

baldy3105 is correct. Samba doesn't support that. There has been talk of making Samba 3.0 be able to interface with Windows 2000 Active Directory. The product isn't out yet so...

You still have options. You can load up NT as a member server and let it join the Samba domain.

If you want redundancy there is a way to set up Samba as a BDC to a Samba PDC. I read the document but it sounded a bit cumbersome. You can check it out at
