what needed to be configured in RHEL for making it PDC ? and XP as Client ? Same as PDC in Windows

Posted 05-12-2011 at 10:09 AM by vamshi_krishv

I need to configure Redhat Linux as Domain Controller in my organisation, where all of my clients PC's will be Windows XP or Windows 7 ( where i can login through Domain users ). what exactly i need to configure in Redhat Linux, i heard Configuring Samba as PDC is quite enough ? is that right ? then what is Open LDAP ? should i need to Configure Open LDAP also ?

Righr now i have configured DNS, i am able to dig my server name. it's well resolving, bit i am unable to connect my XP Pc's as clients to the Server. while changing the name it is unable to contact the Server. { i tried the same process in Windows DC environment, joining clients to domain, where domain users can login to client PC's }

Can you please guide what exactly i need to configure ?
1. DNS or 2. Sambe or 3. Openldap ?

For DNS we need to make entries for each client in Zones. is that enough. Please let me know.
