But what about people who want to use Samba without ADS, perhaps far
away from a Windows environment? It's more simple to configure, it
doesn't need specially trained operators.
What about "Samba 4 light for SOHO"?
I prefer using cifs instead of nfs, p.e., even in a LAN only with Linux
clients. And there's no need for an ADS. There's no need for a DNS
monster like ISC bind.
