SAMBA Administration

This course teaches how to administer a SAMBA-3 environment. SAMBA-3 provides file and print services to Microsoft Window clients using the SMB/CIFS protocols. This course will give the student hands on experience implementing, configuring, and troubleshooting a SAMBA server. After a quick system setup, the student will learn numerous troubleshooting techniques and tools. Then implement print services and set up SAMBA as a Primary Domain Controller. The Samba Web Administration Tool (SWAT) will also be utilized for easy administration.
