if you want the Linux Server to act as a domain controller, you will need to configure it with NIS. For centralized File Storage, you will need to use NFS. This works if you have linux based machines as clients.
Okay sooooo....Samba can not be used to replace a Windows based server? Isn't Samba only software that helps Windows get along with Linux? So if you have Window's based clients you could not have a Linux maching running Samba...you would want a Windows based server?
Sorry just need more clarification. I'm just a newbie =)
I am not so sure if you can have Samba to replace a Windows based DC if you have windows based clients. As far as I know Samba solely allows Windows based comps to access a linux share and vice versa. If u can replace a windows dc with a samba server, kindly do let me know of the steps to do so. would be of great help to me.
yes u can replace a windows member server with a samba server. i am not challenging that part.
