Actually, reading the official docs should be fine. However, here are some experiences and hints.
For successfully building SAMBA4, you need some extra packages on your Ubuntu machine/vm:
apt-get install build-essential libattr1-dev libblkid-dev libgnutls-dev libreadline-dev python-dev autoconf python-dnspython gdb pkg-config bind9utils resolvconf krb5-user git-core screen acl python-dev libgcrypt11-dev libtalloc-dev libldb-dev libtevent-dev zlib1g-dev libacl1-dev libattr1-dev libblkid-dev libgnutls-dev libreadline-dev python-dev python-dnspython gdb pkg-config libpopt-dev libldap2-dev dnsutils
git clone git://git.samba.org/samba.git samba-master cd samba-master git checkout v4-0-stable
We are just using the included Makefile. As we want to use LDAP with Start TLS later, we need to pass the appropriate parameter before actually compiling.
./configure --enable-gnutls make
Note: If you’r already running a samba instance, you need to stop it before installing:
service samba4 stop
Making backups is always a good idea, assuming you installed into the default directory:
cp -R /usr/local/samba /usr/local/samba.bak
Finally, install the files:
Just paste the following into /etc/init/samba4.conf:
description "SMB/CIFS File and Active Directory Server" author "Jelmer Vernooij <email@example.com>" start on (local-filesystems and net-device-up) stop on runlevel [!2345] expect fork normal exit 0 pre-start script [ -r /etc/default/samba4 ] && . /etc/default/samba4 install -o root -g root -m 755 -d /var/run/samba install -o root -g root -m 755 -d /var/log/samba end script exec /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -D
