Samba Server Training​ Course Overview

Samba is an open-source software suite that runs on Unix/Linux based platforms. Samba can communicate with Windows clients like a native application. It provides this service by employing the Common Internet File System (CIFS). This Samba Server Training is designed to provide knowledge about the working of Samba.

In this Samba Server Training, delegates will get an understanding of how to install Samba and enable SWAT (Samba Web Administration Tool). Delegates will learn to create a PDF printer and manage Windows print drivers. In addition, delegates will learn how to configure Samba PDC and BDC. They will also be introduced to accounts, authentication, and authorisation.

During this 1-day training course, delegates will become familiarised with Samba and CUPS, queue lists, and tdb files. They will be introduced to name resolution and network browsing. Post completion of this training, delegates will be able to troubleshoot name services, network addresses and NetBIOS names.
