Samba in Debian Edu

Samba is now configured as standalone server with modern SMB2/SMB3 support and usershares enabled, see /etc/samba/smb-debian-edu.conf on the main server. This way non-admin users are enabled to provide shares.

As Samba has dropped the insecure SMB1 protocol, the option to setup Samba as NT4-style PDC is gone.

For site specific changes, copy /usr/share/debian-edu-config/ to the /etc/samba directory. The settings in will override those contained in smb-debian-edu.conf.

Please note:

Accessing files via Samba

Connections to a user's home directory and to additional site specific shares (if configured) are possible for devices running Linux, Android, macOS, iOS, iPadOS, Chrome OS or Windows. Other devices like Android based ones require a file manager with SMB2/SMB3 support, also known as LAN access. X-plore or Total Commander with LAN plugin might be a good choice.

Use \\tjener\<username> or smb://tjener/<username> to access the home directory.
