Since computers seldom work as isolated systems, it is to be expected that as a system administrator or engineer, you know how to set up and maintain a network with multiple types of servers. Since you can read about the background and the technical aspects of both Samba and NFS all over the Internet, in this article and the next we will cut right to the chase with the topic at hand. Our current testing environment consists of two RHEL 7 boxes and one Windows 8 machine, in that order:. We will also change the group owner of this directory to finance and set its permissions to read, write, and execution permissions for the owner and the group owner :.

Samba performance is good in most circumstances, but modern Linux distributions have improved file systems since Samba was first developed. In particular, they have a feature that Samba does not take advantage of by default. In recent work I found that making some simple changes to Samba could significantly improve the Samba write performance on Linux from a modern Windows client Windows 7. This document will explain how to take advantage of this to increase the speed of writes on your file server, and how to measure the changes to ensure this has the desired effect.

Windows machines and Macs come with the functionality to work with with Samba out of the box, and you should only need to install a single Samba package for Linux machines.
