Few days ago I was going for an overtime in office just to finish installing samba in a Centos 7 minimal for my working server. Two consecutive nights, samba didn’t install correctly after several tries. Third night came, I called a help from one of my bosses and wtf it was just a common mistake that I ignore that made the samba runs. Hahha! Poor me.
Samba is an open source, and free software suite that provides file and print services to the SMB/CIFS clients. It allows us to share files, folders, and printers between Linux server and Windows clients. Using Samba, we can setup a domain controller on Unix/Linux server, and integrate the Windows clients to the Domain controller.
