How to install Samba as PDC on Ubuntu Server 16.04

Currently researching this topic.

GOALS:
* Create an Active Directory Domain Controller
* Allow Windows PCs to authenticate against the domain
* Allow Windows PCs to join the domain
* Share files on Linux to Windows PCs

Outline
  1. DONE - Install Ubuntu Server
  2. DONE - Prerequisites
  3. DONE - Samba PDC Install
  4. NOT STARTED - Samba BDC Install
  5. DONE - Domain user management
  6. DONE - Setup file shares
  7. NOT STARTED - Backup / Restore domain
  8. NOT STARTED - DNS
  9. NOT STARTED - DHCP
  10. NOT STARTED - ?
Might need to break it out into phases:
  1. Phase 1 = PDC
  2. Phase 2 = DNS
  3. Phase 3 = DHCP
  4. Phase 4 = File Shares
  5. Phase 5 = BDC
  6. Phase 6 = Backups



Old Outline when I "thought" I would be doing OpenLDAP and Samba Active Directory:
  1. IN PROGRESS - Directory Design
  2. DONE - Install Ubuntu Server
  3. DONE - Prerequisites
    • DONE - Hostname / Domain name resolution
    • DONE - Install Apache web server
    • NOT STARTED - Create self-signed SSL certificate
    • NOT STARTED - Apply SSL to Apache
  4. DONE - Install OpenLDAP
  5. IN PROGRESS - Configure OpenLDAP
  6. NOT STARTED - Configure organizational units via command-line
  7. NOT STARTED - Configure organizational units via web-interface
  8. NOT STARTED - Configure users via command-line
  9. NOT STARTED - Configure users via web-interface
  10. NOT STARTED - Join Windows computers to the domain
  11. NOT STARTED - Join Linux computers to the domain
  12. NOT STARTED - Backup / Restore
  13. NOT STARTED - Redundant server
