New PBI: Samba

The following PBI is now available in Software Manager:

Samba: Samba4 is an attempt to implement an Active Directory compatible Domain Controller. In short, you can join a WinNT, Win2000, WinXP or Win2003 member server to a Samba4 domain, and it will behave much as it does in AD, including Kerberos domain logins where applicable.

Note that this PBI provides the server portion of Samba as PC-BSD aleady includes the client version of Samba. Since this is the server version, you will need to edit the smb.conf configuration file in order to complete the server setup. You can either do this manually or use KDE’s or GNOME’s Windows sharing services which provide front-ends to the Samba configuration.
