NIS + Active Directory
i was thinking about the difference between NIS and AD and i would like to ask you this: When you have a windows network and you have active directory, you can have roaming accounts, which means that your data are being saved to the server. Now, i know that this can be done also in Linux, but what i do not know is if in Linux works the same way. I mean that If you have a laptop connected to an AD, you don't have to be always connected to the server in order to get your files. Only a copy of them is saved to the server and a copy to the laptop. CAN this happent also in Linux?
