How do you handle your Linux based File Server?
I'm just curious how you guys handle your Linux file servers. I assume you're all using Samba/CIFS as your protocol of choice. But what is your platform based on? Did you just install Samba and manually edit the smb.conf file? Do your users just link over to their home directory or do you export their data elsewhere? For example, at home I'm used to just mounting the drives in /media. So right now I have a pair of raid 1 drives going to /media/NAS, and within NAS I just create folders with certain permissions that I need.
Do you guys manually edit the config file?
Do you use a simple gui like system-config-samba?
Do you use OpenFiler or FreeNAS instead?
Or do you use some other web based utility to help remotely manage the file server?
I think that's my main issue. I want to be able to remotely handle my Samba shares since physical access isn't always the easiest thing. But I'm having a hard time finding a decent web based GUI. Webmin isn't recommended, SWAT is dead, system-config-samba is simple but very handy for the basic stuff and has no web based frontend, and Zentyal is kind of strange since it edits system files in a very strange way.
