Domain Controller - free Active Directory server

A Samba4-based Active Directory-compatible domain controller that supports printing services and centralized Netlogon authentication for Windows systems, without requiring Windows Server. Since 1992, Samba has provided a secure and stable free software re-implementation of standard Windows services and protocols (SMB/CIFS).

This appliance includes all the standard features in TurnKey Core, and on top of that:

  • SSL support out of the box.

  • Webmin modules for configuring Samba.

  • Domain controller (Samba) configurations:

    • Preconfigured NetBIOS name: DC1

    • Sets domain/realm names on first boot

    • Create new AD domain, or join existing AD domain

    • Created administrator account is pre-set as Domain User/Admin

    • Domain Admins have full permissions on the domain.

      • Default permissions: owner full permissions.
    • Configured plug-and-play printing support:

      • Installed PDF printer (drops printed docs to $HOME/PDF).
      • Configured cups web interface to bind to all interfaces and support SSL.
  • Includes flip to convert text file endings between UNIX and DOS formats.

  • Includes TurnKey web control panel (convenience).


Credentials (passwords set at first boot)

  • Webmin, Webshell, SSH, MySQL: username root
  • Samba: username administrator
