We have a NT4 Domain in our mainoffice.
Now we have to install servers all over germany.
(About 20 locations) The offices are connectet over DSL/VPN.
We think about using samba to have a stable and inexpensive solution.
Is there a solution to use samba over a wide area network?
We have alraedy one standalone samba-domain (domain-logons with
machine-accounts) in a small office in Berlin.
It works fine and makes no Problems.
What kind of problems we have to face, if we want to install samba servers
connectet only over DSL/VPN to the "mother" in our mainoffice.
- broken connections to the domain
- single point of administration
- login scripts
we are working at this time with MS. So we have not the best practice in
Linux/samba. We have to learn a lot. (also english:-))
Have fun and thanks....
