Samba vs NAS vs NFSv4

0 votes
128 views

Here we have been using Samba (2 & 3) for years as the main file server and also as PDC (integrated with LDAP) so we have centralized account management for both Linux and Windows server and clients.

Now we intent to put most of our data on centralized storage, and are evaluating many entry-level SAN products lie HP P2000G3 and Dell MD3200. We are also intrigued with some ebtry-level NAS solutions from Iomega, EMC and IBM. Maybe someone on the list can share his/her experience
about NAS servers vs Samba3:

  • Will a NAS server provide SMB/CIFS shares, integrated with Samba domain security? Or will then need a Microsoft Active Domain Controller?
  • Moving to Samba4 (or FreeIPA) would solve those issues, if I can't use the current Samba3 PDC and BDC with a NAS server?
  • NFS access to the NAS server will be compatible with latest NFSv4 security, or will it require the "trust-based" weak security model from NFSv3 and v2?

Can someone provide some reference to when exactly a "Normal Release" cause is used vs a "Unspecified" cause.
