Configure Samba Server on CentOs 7
This article will be a quick guide to show you guys how to setup a network share with Samba on CentOs 7 or any other similar Linux distribution like Red Hat.
Samba share allows sharing of files between the server and various different computers on the same network.
Note: The following commands will require super user privileges.
1. Install Samba: Although Samba should come preinstalled on Centos but you can install it or check if it’s installed using the command
sudo yum install samba
2. Start services smb and nmb:
sudo service smb start && sudo service nmb start
You can now check the status of these services by typing the command
sudo service smb status
