I have a Windows Small Business Server 2003 as well as two Linux Fedora Core Servers which are members of the Active Directory domain. The Linux Servers are used solely for the purpose of providing a samba share for our Windows users.
The problem I have is that when I need to reboot the Small Business Server for whatever reason or it crashed etc etc, user access to the Linux samba shares will be unavailable because obviously the Linux Servers rely on the Windows Server Active Directory for authentication.
Can anyone suggest a way to get round this issue? Would it be possible to purchase a Windows 2003 Server standard that would join the domain and act as a backup to the current Active Directory?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks!
