First I want to thank you for maintaining a debian repo with updated
packages, made my life much easier!
If you have a small network, yes, a DC only is not recommended, but
if configured correcly it works fine. I see you have only one linux
server, so i can assum only windows clients. Then, i say yes, setup
an AD DC as fileserver.
Do you have any pointers on which wiki tutorial I should follow to
get things started?
Follow the DC wiki page:
There is even a section: Using the Domain Controller as a File Server
This will send you to:
Where you will need to read this section:
Configuring the Name Service Switch
Which will refer you to:
This will tell you how to set up the libnns_winbind links
Having said all that, you can do it all by installing
samba attr winbind libpam-winbind libpam-krb5 libnss-winbind
krb5-config krb5-user ntp dnsutils ldb-tools
set up ntp as per the wiki:
provision the domain, run 'pam-auth-update' ensure everything is
checked and tab to <OK> and press enter, now start 'samba'
It should just work.
I can't thank you enough for this, great walk through!
I will probably have more questions during the setup, but I have only
one left for now:
Will it create any issues if I do it within the current network or do
you recommend doing in network lab?
