Replace SMB Server with open source version in Mac OS X Lion Server
Authored by: wheelsx2 on Apr 03, '12 07:58:50AM

Is you want a UI for Samba, you might try webmin. http://www.webmin.com/osx.html

The install notes look a bit out of date, but webmin is very well supported on linux and makes samba admin quite simple.

Replace SMB Server with open source version in Mac OS X Lion Server

Webmin support for OS X has never been that great, and the last time I tried it, it had not been updated for the new directory-based password and login mechanism that OS X uses. I installed Webmin and tried to change a user password with it, and it really borked that user account.

Now, this was almost a year ago and YMMV. But I gotta say I love Webmin on Linux but not so much with OS X, even before the above problem I had.
