I am working on a project for college and part of it is to plan and set up (in VMs) a network for a business of roughly 50 people with Windows PCs.
The network must include a file server with roaming profiles and dedicated storage space for each employee as well as backup. This would be done with Active Directory and a Domain Controller which I know is a windows server killer app.
My question is if this would all be possible to do on Linux based server(s). I have tried doing some research on this but I haven’t been able to find anything conclusive. I am familiar with making file servers with Linux however, more advanced server configuration in Linux is new to me.
I know that a lot of my class mates will be using windows based servers (We were taught in windows server 2012) but I would like to expand my knowledge of Linux and I see this as a good opportunity to do so.
Thanks, any help is appreciated.
