On reflection, I have decided to refine my question.
We are moving to using a samba pdc for our Council (migrating from
winnt4). We have set this up in a experimental area and feel very
comfortable with having a samba pdc, in addition, our primary file and
print servers are samba, and have been for the past 4 years. What we
would really like to know is how to add additional samba servers! Our
Q1. If we want to add a samba server, what is the best practice in this
community? For example, if we add another linux machine to provide more
hard disk space for our clients
1. Would you mount its drives via nfs to the pdc or use samba on the
additional machine to serve its disk directly?
2. Or is there some other way to do it????
Q2. If you use samba on the new machine to share out the resource, what
do we set the security variable to in the smb.conf, DOMAIN or SERVER????
Do you need a machine account on the pdc for the new samba server?
