LiNUX Lab

Samba4 Windows and Linux Client and 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

Overview

This Hands On Lab will show you how to set up Windows Server 2008 shares so that they are available to a Linux client. Additionally, we will demonstrate how to set up Ubuntu Linux as a file share server for Windows clients. We will talk about how to secure those shares in both directions by setting up account access and using credentials files to secure the password exchange between our systems. Finally, we will discuss all the services that have to be installed and running on both Windows and Linux for both operating systems to function as either file servers or clients.

Scenarios

Windows Server with Linux Clients:
A home or office environment where there are a mix of Linux and Windows operating systems but the primary location for shareable resources (files and/or printers) are on Windows systems (desktops or servers).

Linux Server with Windows Client:
A home or office environment where there are a mix of Linux and Windows operating systems but the primary location for shareable resources (files and/or printers) are on Linux systems (desktops or servers).

Hybrid:
