Installation overview for computers new to both authentication, privilege elevation, and audit and monitoring services and Samba

If you’re configuring a computer that does not yet have either Samba working nor the DirectControl agent, here’s an overview of what you need to do.

Make sure that you have the software you need.

Make sure that you have the latest version of the DirectControl agent, the Centrify adbindproxy package, and the open source Samba files.

Install the DirectControl agent.

Refer to the Centrify Authentication Service, Privilege Elevation Service, and Audit & Monitoring Service documentation for instructions.

Install open source Samba.

All major UNIX and Linux distributions have Samba as a native package. See your distributor’s package or port system for a native install of Samba on your system. You can also visit https://samba.plus/ which offers Samba packages for Red Hat Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, and Debian.

Install the Centrify adbindproxy package.

See Installing the adbindproxy components

Run the adbindproxy.pl script.

See Configuring the Samba integration

Modify the Samba configuration file, as needed.
