Microsoft networking (also known as SMB /CIFS) is widely used in corporate networks for sharing files, printers and for the authentication of users. Often it is desirable to use Linux or Unix servers in a Microsoft environment. Samba makes this possible.
Whilst setting up a network using Windows can seem deceptively easy, in actual fact SMB/CIFS networking is very complex. NT Domains and Active Directory add to the complexity. Understanding these protocols and systems is essential when seeking to use them effectively and particularly when you wish to mix Microsoft networking across multiple operating systems.
This course explains in detail the principles of networking using CIFS/SMB. It also shows in detail how you can use Samba to implement Microsoft networking on Linux and Unix.
This course is ideal for network administrators who are responsible for integrating Microsoft networking with Unix and Linux platforms.
A good knowledge of general networking concepts and TCP/IP in particular, is required.
Delegates will each have a Linux server running Samba. Windows servers will be available within the classroom.
All our trainers are practising network consultants with extensive experience with Samba networking on UNIX & Linux in large commercial environments. They are ideally suited to bring you the highest quality of training.
Our courses are available world-wide as on-site courses and at our training venues as public courses.
