Introduction to Samba

The Samba package provides file and print services to SMB/CIFS clients and Windows networking to Linux clients. Samba can also be configured as a Windows NT 4.0 Domain Controller replacement (with caveats working with NT PDC's and BDC's), a file/print server acting as a member of a Windows NT 4.0 or Active Directory domain and a NetBIOS (rfc1001/1002) nameserver (which amongst other things provides LAN browsing support).

Configuration Information

To build Samba against Linux-PAM pass one of the following to configure:

--with-pam --with-pammodulesdir=/lib/security
--with-pam --with-pammodulesdir=/lib32/security
--with-pam --with-pammodulesdir=/lib64/security

Non-Multilib

Compile the package:

cd source3 &&
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --libdir=/usr/lib --localstatedir=/var \
    --with-piddir=/var/run --with-fhs --with-cifsmount &&
make

Install the package

make ROOTSBINDIR=/sbin install-everything &&

install -v -m644 ../examples/smb.conf.default /etc/samba &&

install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/samba-3.5.6 &&
install -v -m644 ../docs/*.pdf /usr/share/doc/samba-3.5.6 &&
ln -v -s ../../samba/swat  /usr/share/doc/samba-3.5.6

Multilib

32Bit

Compile the package:

export USE_ARCH=32 &&
cd source3 &&
CC="gcc ${BUILD32}" ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --libdir=/usr/lib --localstatedir=/var \
    --with-piddir=/var/run --with-fhs --with-cifsmount &&
make

Install the package

make ROOTSBINDIR=/sbin install-everything

Clean up the enviornment:

unset USE_ARCH

N32

Compile the package:

export USE_ARCH=n32 &&
cd source3 &&
CC="gcc ${BUILDN32}" ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --libdir=/usr/lib32 --localstatedir=/var \
    --with-piddir=/var/run --with-fhs --with-cifsmount &&
make

Install the package

make ROOTSBINDIR=/sbin install-everything

Clean up the enviornment:

unset USE_ARCH

64Bit

Compile the package:

export USE_ARCH=64 &&
cd source3 &&
CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --libdir=/usr/lib64 --localstatedir=/var \
    --with-piddir=/var/run --with-fhs --with-cifsmount &&
make

Install the package

make ROOTSBINDIR=/sbin install-everything &&

install -v -m644 ../examples/smb.conf.default /etc/samba &&

install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/samba-3.5.6 &&
install -v -m644 ../docs/*.pdf /usr/share/doc/samba-3.5.6 &&
ln -v -s ../../samba/swat  /usr/share/doc/samba-3.5.6

Clean up the enviornment:

unset USE_ARCH

Configuring

Bootscript

Install the init script for samba included in the bootscripts package:

make install-samba

Install the init script for winbind included in the bootscripts package:

make install-winbind

Creating /etc/samba/smb.conf

Client Only

Create a basic configuration file:

cat > /etc/samba/smb.conf << "EOF"
[global]
    workgroup = MYGROUP
    dos charset = cp850
    unix charset = ISO-8859-1
EOF

Client + Server Support

Add user NoBody for the server to run under. This is not needed of only using the client side, or if user/group NoBody already exist

groupadd -g 65534 nobody &&
useradd -c "Nobody" -d /dev/null \
       -u 65534 -g nobody -s /bin/false nobody

Create a share for each user's home directory, and share all printers to Windows machines:

cat > /etc/samba/smb.conf << "EOF"

[global]
    workgroup = MYGROUP
    dos charset = cp850
    unix charset = ISO-8859-1

[homes]
    comment = Home Directories
    browseable = no
    writable = yes

[printers]
    comment = All Printers
    path = /var/spool/samba
    browseable = no
    guest ok = no
    printable = yes
EOF

At this point, you will most likely want to install SWAT (Samba Web Administration Tool) to manage /etc/samba/smb.conf from a web browser.

Adding Samba Users
