I want to have a shared drive for 15 users. Company has around 100 users but others should not access. Most of the users will access from Windows
. Couple of users uses MAC. I have only one Drive 2TB in which I will install Linux OS (Ubuntu 12.04) and shared partition
1. This partition should be Primary or Extended?
2. What format I should use EXT4? NTFS? WIN32?
3. Users should able to read, write execute on the shared drive but user should not be allowed to login to the Linux Ubuntu 12.04 workstation. How should I enable this? (It will be good to authenticate users using Active Directory)
4. Is this shared Partition should be separate or I can share a directory from existing partition? What is the best method?
