Re: [Samba] Minimal AD DC server for dev/test setup




Thank you Louis!

I had
https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Setting_up_Samba_as_an_Active_Directory_Domain_Controller
in my bag of tricks, now from your link I found
https://github.com/thctlo/samba4/blob/master/howtos/stretch-base-2.0-samba-minimal-ad.txt
which looks good.

Our Linux platform is CentOS at this time (but I've been a DD and long time
debianista). I'll go through both.

How do you create, query user/group records?  I'm used to ldapadd,
ldapsearch, etc.

thank you,



martin
