Neighborhood and the Windows netcommand. Samba has significant advantages,
including reliability,licensing,vendor independence,adherence to the trend,modularity,
availability of highly skilled talent,and cost reduction.

Samba isn’t perfect. It doesn’t yet have directory service,it requires expertise in addi-
tional skills,and there’s nobody to sue if things go wrong. Also,a perception exists that
there’s nobody to support Samba,but that perception is rapidly being replaced by the
perception of superior service as IT personnel learn to take advantage of mailing list and
newsgroup support available for Open Source software.

Samba implementation is like any other project or endeavor in that support must be
enlisted. Such support includes people at existing successful Samba implementation
sites,upper management,technical management,technologists,and users.

Samba is not right for every organization,so there’s a need to approach it in stages,start-
ing with a proof of concept,moving on to a “backwater server”implementation,then to a
departmental or branch office server implementation,and finally as part of the enterprise-
wide network.

Samba’s role as a file server requires it to store files on a UNIX (or other non-Windows)
box,while giving the appearance that the files are on a Windows box. This necessitates
Samba storing all Windows (DOS,for practical purposes) file attributes on the UNIX
computer. Most of these attributes are stored in the UNIX file’s or directory’s permissions.

A full understanding of Samba requires understanding of UNIX file and directory per-
missions,DOS file and directory attributes,and how they map to each other.
Additionally,it requires the administration technique of assigning groups to projects and
users to groups. These must be understood from the Windows,UNIX,and Samba points
of view. Samba adds quite a bit of functionality over and above the UNIX group access
paradigm.

After reading this chapter,you’ll thoroughly understand the aforementioned information
and be ready to tackle other file-serving prerequisites such as networking.
