Praise for The Official Samba-3 HOWTO and Reference Guide
"This book helped me solve a Windows networking problem that I had been struggling with for a long time. This book is a must-have for anyone who is trying to implement and maintain a Microsoft file and print server environment ”that even includes environments without Samba!"
” Brad Jones, Senior Network/Systems Architect
"The book is outstanding. The sections on printing are THE BEST I have ever seen ”totally excellent . This book tells network admins the how-and-why of subjects that no one else can cover like [the authors]. In plain language, the authors tell you how to properly configure the various sections to get it all working. [The authors] really, really understand what an admin is going through and have combined that with their own global experience to make a smashingly great book. A must-have manual to use and learn from."
” Ismet Kursunoglu, MD, FCCP, Medical Director, Orbitonix
"This book is for anyone looking to implement Samba for the first time, upgrade from an existing version, or even streamline an existing installation ”in any type of environment. It is a much-needed, comprehensive reference. I would feel confident going into any environment to implement a Samba solution armed with this book. Written by the authors of the Samba software, the book's first-hand perspective gives it an edge in dealing with the new features present in the updated release."
” Steve Elgersma, Systems Administrator, Princeton University, Department of Computer Science
"[This book contains] some absolutely outstanding documentation. It is broken into self-contained chapters that start by laying out how a certain task or protocol works in general, and then how to configure Samba to take part in it. Considering that Samba can perform so many different roles, the mix-and-match method is a lot more sensible . Even if you don't use Samba, consider [this book] as a reference for troubleshooting Windows problems ”I've found [this book offers] a far more complete and focused discussion of Windows technologies for the sysadmin than any Microsoft book or webpage."
” Kristopher Magnusson, Open Source Software Advocate
"When I showed some Microsoft network admins I have been working with The Official Samba-3 HOWTO and Reference Guide , they were more than just impressed. Good work on good docs."
