Migration Samba – Brussels Training

Brussels training was using Samba 3 and needed to migrate to Samba Active Directory. We therefore supported them in their migration and trained system administrators in the use of Active Directory.

Setting up Samba Active Directory

Context

  • 3 500 machines
  • 4,000 users
