Microsoft networking is widely used in corporate networks. It is used for sharing files, sharing printers, network logons, security and directory services. Commonly, Active Directory is used to provide an integrated network environment.
In addition, many organisations also utilise Unix and Linux systems. The challenge is how to integrate the two.
Samba is the primary tool for integrating Microsoft networks with Unix and Linux systems. Samba gives organisations a comprehensive set of highly configurable interoperability solutions.
Whilst setting up a network using Windows can seem deceptively easy, in reality SMB/CIFS networking is very complex. NT and Active Directory domains add to that 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.
