Chapter 6. Advanced Disk Shares

So far, the configurations we've discussed have been rudimentary and useful primarily for testing an initial server installation. In this chapter, you will see exactly why so many network administrators have chosen Samba as their interoperable file serving solution. Adding features such as Virtual File System (VFS) plug-ins and support for Microsoft Distributed File Systems (MS-DFS) to Samba's already flexible and powerful file serving capabilities builds a solid foundation that is able to compete with and outperform many commercial CIFS implementations. By the end of this chapter, you will be well-versed in navigating tasks such as bridging the differences between Unix filesystems and Windows clients, configuring group shares, and managing ACLs on file and directories.
