Replace windows Domain controller( Active directory , DNS, DHCP) with Linux box
I have a windows 2003 running Domain controller, which is configured for DHCP, DNS, and Active Directory.
I need to replace that with linux.
the service we need is :
-clients can login from any pc.
-clients are able to connect to the internet (some are restricted)
-clients will be able to use our application server (web based apps)
-home directory of the clients needs to be on the server. ( should be mapped on the win clients machine so they can store their files their)
I know how to configure HPCP and DNS, but i do't know what else i need to configure to achieve the mentioned features.
i googled it and found many results, some says samba others say samba/ldap. i do't know which server/service need to be installed neither its configuration.
I need your help specifying which service need to be running to get this done.
