Samba 4 as a primary dc

Postby Mr_Si » 2018/05/09 21:44:37

Hi all,

Has anyone here ever installed samba 4 as a primary domain controller?

Mine is currently installed as a standalone mode with windows clients connecting only to shares.

I’m interested in centrally controlling username / password authentication too for both windows and Linux clients but mainly windows ones.

Is it possible to change from standalone mode to a dc mode?

I would be interested in guidance.

I have googled but only seem to find initial installation instructions to install samba 4 as a dc from scratch. I already have it installed and so not sure how convert across.

I am on centos 7. I also have another location with centos 6 (latest updates installed)
