we have a somewhat aging Linux/Samba filesever authenticating against Windows AD (AD to be replaced with UCS). Server is additionally running some internal webservices and several custom made (cron) scripts to handle some special workflows.
We’ve been fine with command line server administration so far, but a central point (GUI) to handle shares/ACLs would nice.
Would you suggest setting up a new, replacement filesever as UCS (what role?) or as “vanilla” Debian/Devuan and use the main UCS instance for authetication and share management (if possible)?
Any objections installing additinal Debian packages in an UCS installation and running custom scripts on it?
Tahnks in advance!
