Configuring the SMB Server – Process Overview

This section describes the high-level process for configuring the SMB server.

  1. Determine your identity mapping strategy.

    See Creating Your Identity Mapping Strategy.

  2. Disable the Samba service, if necessary.

    See Disabling the Samba Service.

  3. Determine whether you want the SMB server to join an existing Windows domain or a Windows workgroup.

  4. Define one or more SMB shares.

    See How to Create an SMB Share (zfs).

  5. Configure the Oracle Solaris system as a client of the following services that you might use in your environment.

  6. (Optional) Configure the SMB server as a client to the various services that are used in your environment.
