Review of 'Samba-3 By Example'

Author: TechBookReport

TBR writes "Who doesn't love to Samba these days? It's one of the joys of Linux and open source, and one of the keys to infiltrating Linux boxes into Windows shops. However, there's a world of difference between setting up a basic file and print box and moving a complete Windows environment over to Linux. It can be a steep learning curve, which is where John Terpstra, author of the Official Samba-3 HOWTO and Reference Guide, does us all a big favour with this book.

From a simple small office network right through to distributed 2000-user networks to migrating an NT4 domain, the reader is walked through step-by-step, with detailed explanations of how and why things have to be done. Each scenario comes complete with configuration files, installation details, network settings etc. Additionally each scenario comes complete with a FAQ to mop up those questions not answered in the main body of the text.
