Samba File Server Authentication

LDAP authentication Samba file server NAS appliances

JumpCloud now supports the secure authentication to file resources on Samba servers and NAS storage devices. Linux Samba servers or NAS appliances are simply configured to authenticate against JumpCloud’s LDAP endpoint, and JumpCloud provides the secure authentication.

You can visit our support page for a detailed guide on how to setup Samba authentication. You can also view our new whiteboard video for an overview of how it works.

Only organizations that are on the latest version of the JumpCloud platform can use this feature, so if you want to upgrade make sure you contact our Customer Success Team to let us know!
