Configuring Samba

under RedHat 7.0

By D. Lyon

  1. Update the /etc/samba/smb.conf file. Here is what I used. Careful to change the domains and user names (search for lyon to find where I share /home/lyon). Client domains must match samba domains!
  2. Type testparam. You will see something like this.
  3. Type smbadduser lyon:lyon
  4. Type smbadduser root:root
  5. Alter the file /etc/xinetd.d/swat so that disable = no
  6. Give your client a fixed IP address (in an allowable range)
  7. Type /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb restart
  8. Browse the network and find your samba server from the client.
