There are a few feature requests that could lead us to resume the “Windows network” page in server manager
The new page (I’d like “Windows file server” as title) should contain:
“Workgroup name” field, modifiable only with LDAP providers, read-only if joined to AD.
A radio button to switch between legacy NTLM-auth access and domain Kerberos-auth. See this bug.
A checkbox to enable the home$ share, that enables the domain administrator to access users’ home directories.
As requested by some of you, the domain administrator account will be mapped to root.
