Migration from Windows AD to Samba

"Backup of Windows AD and how to migrate it to Samba" was presented by Björn Jacke and Volker Lendecke on December 7, 2023 in the auditorium of the Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm-Zentrum at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The two long-standing members of the Samba team at SerNet and the Samba Core Team contributed the talk to the Adminstammtisch Berlin event series.

The – German only – talk offers the opportunity to benefit from extensive knowledge of migrating and securing Windows Active Directory to Samba: Most Active Directory installations are Windows-based. Samba allows such an AD installation to be backed up using Unix means and the backup then made to run with a Samba DC. This can be useful not only for backups but also for a Windows to Samba migration, which Jacke and Lendecke demonstrated. A recording is available.

They also gave valuable insights into Samba and the SAMBA+ software packages offered by SerNet for various Linux distributions and IBM AIX. The Adminstammtisch Berlin is organized by and for IT professionals who are committed to sharing knowledge and experience and discussing current IT topics.
