Tutorial: Use Samba to Turn Your Linux Ubuntu Server into A PDC (Primary Domain Controller)
In this video I demonstrate how to configure Samba 3.5.6 to become a PCD (Primary Domain Controller). I first edit the smb.conf file and make a few changes. Lucky, most of the code needed is already in the conf file, it just needs to be un-commented. After I tweak the smb configuration file I create the necessary groups and users for the PDC to function correctly. From there I boot up a generic Windows XP VirtualMachine and login to the newly created domain. Finally I demonstrate the benefits of a PDC and talk about why you might want to create a PDC in your small business or home.
*Update: Here is a link to my smb.conf file per request:
