Setup Samba as an Active Directory DC on Ubuntu 18.04. Would like to know how to create a share for my users on a server other than the AD DC server.

For example, my AD DC server is adc1 and my document server is docserver. I have a shared folder on docserver called shareddocs (\docserver\sharedocs).

I need to give users access to this folder when they authenticate to the Active Directory. What permissions do I set on \docserver\shareddocs? How to I set up the share in the smb.conf file on acd1 server?

Does the docserver need to running Samba as well? I assume I need to bring the doc server into the domain?

As usual, thanks for any assistance.
