Creating a Samba 4 Domain Member File Server

Just finished writing up a piece on how to integrate a Samba 4 file server into an existing Active Directory Domain.

The odd thing is creating a Samba 4 server that doesn’t want to be authoritative, but is, instead, subject to another server for auth and permissions.

Not a lot out there I found for just a simple file server. All kinds of stuff for integrating a Linux system to use AD/DC for centralized auth — like user logins to Linux boxes — but not much on just being a file server, that doesn’t need all that extra rigmarole.

Hopefully it will help someone out… 😉
