209 - Deploy a Samba Server

We deploy the real environment, you take the scenario-based labs on us. Hands-on, from anywhere, at any time.

Time required: 3 Hours


In this lab, you will follow the course objectives in deploying and then testing a SAMBA server.


This lab will allow us to install and configure SAMBA shares and test their connection.


NOTE: The video and guide within this Linux Academy Classic Lab uses the 'user' account. Currently, you will need to use the 'linuxacademy' account created when the lab has launched. If you substitute 'linuxacademy' each time it refers to 'user', you will be able to complete the lab as listed in the video and guide.

1. Install and configure Samba server software
2. Explore the Samba server configuration files
3. Add Samba users and passwords for accessing the shares
4. Disable SELinux (not an LPIC-2 objective)
5. Enable and start the server process
6. Verify the service shows our workgroup as available
7. Install and configure client utilities
8. Create mount point on our client and test mount the share
9. Add persisitant configuration so the share is mounted on reboot of the client
