Many industries use Windows client's, but don't need to pay for licenses for the Windows Server backend. In this course, you'll explore SAMBA and learn how to provision shares and the Active Directory on Linux.
There are many financial constraints as well as security concerns in the Enterprise today. Being able to deploy Active Directory on a secure Linux platform without the need for Windows Server's licenses will address both concerns. In this course, Linux: Managing File Services (LPIC-2), you'll learn how to address your growing need for open source in the Enterprise. First, you'll dive into deploying SAMBA as a simple file server, sharing files to Linux and Windows clients alike. Then, you'll explore the domain need by deploying Active Directory on the SAMBA server and using kerberos authentication. Finally, you'll discover how to share files with NFS in a pure Linux environment. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the tools needed to plan and deploy file services in your organization, along with meeting the objectives for the LPIC-2 202 exam.

Course Overview Hello and welcome. My name is Andrew Mallett, but you might already know me as the Urban Penguin. Today we're looking at extending the range of LPIC-2 courses that we have a Pluralsight by adding in for object 209 of the exam 202, File Services, looking at both SAMBA and NFS, but you might already understand that enterprise organizations will often have Windows desktops and the thought of changing this could have vast and very negative user experience as well as the cost of training you'll use is up in a new operating system. So often people are going to stay away from deploying Linux across the desktop, but with the need of reducing costs and adding in security, we can reduce some of your costs and add in security by deploying Linux in your backend. Deploying Linux as your backend service is not going to have any impact on the front end in your users. So we'll be looking at how we can then use Windows as our front-end client and have SAMBA and we'll be looking at SAMBA 44 in our backend deploying Windows shares and the active directory. Also within a pure Linux environment we're going to be taking a look at how we can share filesystems with NFS. By the end of this course you're going to see how you can install and NFS and deploy shares in the Active Directory on SAMBA. You'll also be able to export filesystems using NFS and secure your NFS server. To be able to participate and get the most out of this course you're going to need some good Linux administration and be competent working at the Linux command line.
