SCO OpenServer Release 6.0.0 includes the following products for interoperability with Microsoft® operating systems:
Samba is open source software that allows UNIX systems to act as file and print servers to Microsoft Windows® clients. Samba provides filesharing capabilities using native Microsoft SMB and CIFS protocols.
Samba replaces the Advanced File and Print Server (AFPS) product.
Note the following when installing and using Samba:
The Samba manual pages do not always reflect the true location of files and commands on SCO OpenServer Release 6.0.0. All the Samba commands (swat, smbclient, and so forth) are located in /usr/bin and /usr/sbin, and so are in the path of most users and administrators.
Before running Samba, you must
run the mkdev script to activate the software:
# mkdev samba
The default Samba configuration file, smb.conf, is located under /etc/samba. This file needs to be edited before starting Samba. You can do this by running mkdev samba.
Log in to SWAT using the root user and password.
encrypt passwords = no
This release of Samba defaults to:
passdb backend = smbpasswd
To create the smb root user and corresponding
password, initialize the smbpasswd database by
# smbpasswd -a root
To switch to the tdbsam passdb backend:
passdb backend = tdbsam, smbpasswd
The Heimdal (Kerberos 5) package is supplied in support of Samba. Although Heimdal is a general purpose implementation of Kerberos 5 and should work with any user-level utility that needs it, the utilities themselves need to be linked against the Heimdal libraries at build-time. Currently, only Samba has Kerberos 5 support linked in.
The Heimdal online documentation is available from the Networking category in the online documentation.
