Gfarm is a distributed filesystem, generally used for large scale cluster computing. It's implemented in userland, and can be mounted by FUSE. It utilizes locality of a file to access a data node, and supports Globus GSI for Wide Area Network. Users can explicitly control file replica location on Gfarm. Gfarm can be used as an alternative storage system to HDFS for Hadoop, Samba, MPI-IO, and GridFTP. Monitoring via ZABBIX and Ganglia is also supported.
LDAP Account Manager (LAM) is a web frontend for managing entries (e.g. users, groups, DHCP settings) stored in an LDAP directory. LAM was designed to make LDAP management as easy as possible for the user. It abstracts from the technical details of LDAP and allows persons without technical background to manage LDAP entries. If needed, power users may still directly edit LDAP entries via the integrated LDAP browser.
Print Release System provides Web-based management of System V printing. It sits between Samba and the System V printing system. It ought to be relatively easy to make it work with other printing systems. After the job is printed, the user needs to consult a Web page that shows their queued jobs, which can be selected and released for printing (or canceled). A record is maintained for each job and, once the user reaches a quota, they can't release any further jobs to the printer.
Resara Server is an Active Directory compatible open source server for small businesses designed around Samba 4. It is designed to be simple and easy to use. Setup only takes a few minutes. The management console lets you manage users, share files, work with storage, and configure DHCP and DNS.
Pdbsql provides three samba passdb backend modules: pdb_mysql, pdb_pgsql, and pdb_multi. pdb_mysql is a MySQL passdb backend. pdb_pgsql is a PostgreSQL passdb backend. pdb_multi is a backend which loads multiple passdb backends. These are provided because support for MySQL and PostGreSQL passdb backends has been removed from the Samba source tree, due to lack of an active maintainer.
TurnKey Domain Controller Appliance is a Samba-based Windows PDC server equivalent which is configured to support netlogon, network attached storage for domain users, roaming profiles, and PnP printing services with an example PDF printing service. It includes a powerful Web interface for configuring Samba and printing services. No configuration is required and security patches are automatically installed. To minimize footprint, the appliance is built from the ground up with the minimum required components. It runs everywhere thanks to multiple build formats, including an installable live CD, a VMDK with OVF support, and an Amazon EC2 AMI.
TurnKey File Server Appliance is an easy to use file server that combines Windows-compatible network file sharing with an advanced Web-based file manager. It includes support for SMB, SFTP, and rsync. The server is configured to allow server users to manage files in private or public storage. It is based on Samba and eXtplorer. Security patches are automatically installed. To minimize footprint the appliance is built from the ground up with the minimum required components. It runs everywhere thanks to multiple build formats, including an installable live CD, a VMDK with OVF support, and an Amazon EC2 AMI.
adv-samba is a PHP class to batch audit SAMBA resources on remote hosts or large LANs. It's a very handy tool during network audits. For example, imagine a LAN with 500 workstations. You want to find any illegal MP3s on company machines. With this tool, you recursively dump the share directory structure. It works with Active Directory authentication too.
