Looking at the votes, I have to say again, that I would recommend LDAP here if you don’t need samba/windows shares with their ACLs for client devices.
I came from the M$ world and I also like samba AD because I am used to it but in this case I prefer openldap because:
You shouldn’t install services not needed because of ressource and security reasons.
Good idea. I also use NS firewall instead of provider one on my VPS just because I don’t want to do firewall settings twice. It would destroy the advantage of the easy smooth NS firewall configuration where services open their ports automatically. But I just use one interface because I do not need an internal network and with just LDAP I do not need a bridge. I have nextcloud, ntop, omd/nagios, roundcube, sogo, webtop and for sure your repo with delegation, fail2ban and yum-cron running. In the end it depends on what you want to do/provide with your VPS but I don’t see an advantage of samba here.
Fully agree. There are some howtos available (all virt environment installations, even Hyper-V) already but lacking networking scenarios.
I think we have many scenarios in this forum, so maybe just do some research and put content from forum to wiki.
In NS you can do it in web UI on “Network” page. And a bridge is autocreated when installing samba dc… Don’t have SME running anymore and honestly I don’t remember SME bridging config so I can’t check.
