    Setting up a NetGear Ready NAS with Active Directory

    Just about to set up a NAS with 3 shares and set it up with hopefully propper user shares so kids cant move folders like they could in the old buffallo.

    Had a google about and seen one site thatsaid when they did the active directory set up it messed up the server?? any one else had anything like that before i start?

    Shouldn't do anything to the server, only if you cludge it. Only issue may be number of AD accounts that it supports, though if you use groups for the file shares that's not an issue. If you have it running directly as the students' home area shares the permissions should be set automatically by AD, or you can use something like NTFSFix afterwards.

    So if I follow the instructions it should be fine

    No what im going to do is move all the shared areas from the buffallo accross to the netgear. These arnt the home directories just like year group areas
    edit forgot to ask what would be the best type of shared folder be for a windows network iSCSI or SBM NFS ect?

    HMM I can see it via the web browser with ip address.
    I can ping it with ip address but cant see it in the network or in AD?

    It should become a member server once joined to the AD.

    Cheers @3s-gtech The instructions on the kb was very confusing and made it appear much harder then it was.
