Integrating with Microsoft Windows

If it’s your first time working with CEFS, please consider deploying it on a standalone environment before integrating it with Active Directory Integration.

Simple Setup


If you are integrating with Active Directory, please STOP and follow the instructions provided in Active Directory Integration.


The easiest way to integrate with Microsoft Windows networks is to simply configure a samba service on your CEFS file-server with a selected number of common shares.

This method is also good for creating an environment that will integrate with LDAP or RADIUS based authentications.

Please go through CEFS Installation and configure a CEFS file-server before continuing.
