Trusty Tahr 14.04 Server Upgrade from Precise 12.04

Trusty Tahr

Today is the day of the Trusty Tahr!

The next Long-Term Support version of Ubuntu Server lands today, with a 5-year support life cycle.  We’ve been testing Trusty every which way for the past couple of months.  I wanted to test Trusty Server + Samba4 against Windows 8, so today I captured some of this work for the ‘tubes.

First I brought up a Windows 8.1 Enterprise trial guest on qemu/kvm, also demonstrating one way to enable virtio SCSI and NIC guest drivers.  Then I configured a freshly-installed Precise box as a very basic and simple samba file server.  Next I confirmed that the Samba 3 shares functioned as expected among Precise, Win8 and Trusty.  And finally, I upgraded the Precise VM to Trusty, and re-tested Samba 4.  Enjoy!
