Cool Anyone know of a good SAMBA Book for Linux Newbies'?


I've been asked to attach our (RHEL 5) Linux Systems to our Server 2008 Network in such a way that when our users login to the Domain that they can open the Samba Shares without being prompted yet again for another password. They want the Windows password to synch with the Samba Shares. Can anyone tell me if there is a good book on how to implement this but be written for someone who does not know allot about Linux. I have setup Samba Shares in a workgroup but this appears to be more difficult, so the book would really need to help me walk through setting this up and the respective servies if not allready running. A million thanks, Johnny Mac

You want to get Using Samba - the definitive guide. It's well written and if you can handle working with Windows domains you'll have no trouble with this book.

I find the Samba documentation to be very good, especially the Official HOWTO and By Example.

I second Samba by Example.

It's also available in PDF.
