Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "This is a detailed tutorial about the steps to set up a Ubuntu based server (Ubuntu 5.10 - Breezy Badger) to act as file- and print server for Windows workstations in small workgroups. This howto uses the tdb backend for Samba to store passwords and account information. This is suitable for workgroups for up to 250 users and is easier to setup than an LDAP backend."

If you want a samba PDC on Ubuntu

Just use the smbldap-installer. It will set everything up that you need and it already uses an ldap back end. all with the need of only answering a few questions.

Notice: a little off the subject.

If you want a more you could check out the new script i just finished. It is for Scientific Linux though. originally based off of the lx-office group ware script. it installs a samba pdc with open-xchange both backended to the same ldap directory. It also sets-up and installs phpldapadmin and webmin for administration. included is and setup as well is bind for dns. It is new and needs a little testing though as i just put it out today.

all one needs to do is download extract and run the script via- and answer a few Q's.

Notice: you do need Scientific Linux a RHEL clone. ( minimal install only needed - which only requires the first cd )

PS I will be porting this to Ubuntu over the next few weeks
