Since you really don't need AD, you can use any applicable Samba 3
how-to for configuration (and Jessie's Samba build, no need for your
own), nothing changed significantly for basic operations. Set up
system-wide accounts and use either the (in)valid users= config option
in your share definitions and/or POSIX ACLs for permissions.
