    i sure hope so.

    2003 server can also be run alone as a client, but why would someone want to do that?

    because I'm lazy, it's free for me, and I get to play around and reformat anytime I want.:)

    is it free for you, or free for your company you work for?

    just cause you have access to the software, doesn't mean you can run it at a company.

    creating user-level file shares, and using samba to authenticate windows clients are 2 different things.

    They are. But plenty of people are running NT domains where a Samba server is the PDC, the BDCs, etc. Lots of people even have LDAP back-ends going for authentication. And some people even have open kerberos stuff going as well.

    Well that's all active directory is... just an over-complicated LDAP database married with DNS and some other shit. I guess if you just want a simple and central point of authentication, samba wouldn't be a bad choice. It works... and most of the time better than NT4 did. :dunno:

    Rack Mount Servers

    Hello again,

    Looking into purchasing the company's first rack-mount server. Anyone have one? Can they be attached to a regular monitor that may be across the room? We have a limit on space. I want to get a rack mount and attached it to a pre-existing monitor that i use for other towers.
    Anyone have pics of their set up?

    Samba won't actually do win2k style domains. Thats next version. But it can do an OpenLDAP backed NT4 domain, that happens to have Kerberos.
