Samba Linux 25 user LAN


I am testing linux/samba for a possible switch from netware. We have 25 users on the LAN and 30 Gig of data. I would use dump as backup. Has anyone done this and has good or bad experience with this?

hi

As to the dump process, i havent faced that situation, but i can tell u that once u have managed to tranfer your 30GB to the linux-samba pc, it will be more that capable of handling all the traffic.

I have not used dump but I have used Samba to provide backup to Windows users. It worked very well. We used lots of RAM in the samba server

Test it and see how you go. Linux/UNIX programs generally do what they say on the tin, so you should be OK

This looks like a pretty comprehensive howto.
