In this case, the security configuration for each shared directory can be implemented using group policies. Concisely, groups define collections of machines that have the same level of access to a specified network resource, and they offer some extra control to such resources. This technique will allow the system administrator for the CWE systems to configure which users/groups have access to what resources (Help.ubuntu.com, 2015). Handling printing in the CWE systems network Printing in the CWE systems will be handled using Active Directory, whereby shared printers appear the same way as SMB shares. In this case, printers are accessible from the same places where hosts can be seen in different workgroups and domains.
