9780131472211: Samba-3 by Example: Practical Exercises to Successful Deployment

Samba-3 by Example provides useful, thoroughly documented explanations for all aspects of a Samba deployment. They’re the same kind of patient answers I got when my dad taught me how to ride a bike without training wheels. Now, if only dad knew active Directory....”

—Will Enestvedt, UNIX System Administrator, Johnson & Wales University
“When my colleague and I were first reading John Terpstra’s Samba-3 by Example, we were impressed by how easy it was to find the chapter we wanted to implement, and the ease of following his step-by-step approach. We always felt Terpstra was there with us, for every configuration line. It was like having our own personal tutor. I always take his book to every client that uses Samba. Additionally, Terpstra does something most authors don’t, he keeps his documentation up to date. When we were doing our first implementation, he just released the update that morning; we downloaded it, printed it, and implemented it. Now, to me, that is cutting-edge technology at its best.”

—Steven C. Henry
“A cook learns to follow a recipe until he has mastered the art. This is your cookbook to successful Windows networks. I followed this recipe to migrate our NT4 domain to Samba-3, and the recipe just worked great. I could not have completed this project without the Samba-3 by Example book—it brings dry, lifeless man-pages down to the reality IT support people face.”

—Geoff Scott, IT Systems Administrator, Guests Furniture Hire Pty Ltd
“I used the book Samba-3 by Example to get started at 8:30 last night. I finished my complete PDC and it was up and running in six hours with Windows 2000 and XP Pro clients ready for work in the morning. That’s from someone who is brand new to Linux. This book is awesome!”

—Jesse Knudsen, Windows Systems Administrator
