Download “The Official Samba-3 HOWTO and Reference Guide 2nd Edition” from Bruce Perens’ Open Source Series. Fully Updated to Reflect Major Improvements and Configuration Changes in Samba-3.0.11 through 3.0.20+.


This is a book about Samba. It is a tool, a derived work of the labors of many and of the diligence and goodwill of more than a few. This book contains material that has been contributed in a persistent belief that each of us can add value to our neighbors as well as to those who will follow us.

This book is designed to meet the needs of the Microsoft network administrator. UNIX administrators will benefit from this book also, though they may complain that it is hard to find the information they think they need. So if you are a Microsoft certified specialist, this book should meet your needs rather well. If you are a UNIX or Linux administrator, there is no need to feel bad — you should have no difficulty finding answers to your current concerns also.
