We're trying to get network access to a hard drive on a server running SCO Unix from Windows Servers. I beleive we need to add the role "SAMBA File Server" to the server so we can mount the drive as a network share that we can access from Windows.

Is it possible to add the SAMBA role to a SCO Unix operating system? Are there any gotchas or concerns?

Is there a walkthrough for installing it? Or can I use the same procedure to install on a linux box? – I.T. Support May 20 '10 at 21:22
On a linux box just install the samba package and then adjust the /etc/samba/smb.conf to your needs. – jneves May 22 '10 at 18:51
