Red Hat Linux 9 + Windows Server 2003 + Windows XP + Fedora in same domain
I have been trying to mix Windows and Linux in the same domain using the Following OSes: RH9, Fedora [I don't recall which version], Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP. I have all the Windows boxes and the RH9 box in the domain, but when I boot the RH9 box I get an error message saying that ypbind (associated with NIS) cannot be bound to the domain (but it is in the domain), the service does not start. I have one of the Windows Server boxes as the FSMO (formerly known as a PDC/Primary Domain Controller) another Windows Server box as a secondary AD server and the third Windows Server box is a member server, the Fedora box and the Windows XP box are workstations. The Fedora box is not yet in the domain though. My question is: with the error I am getting, does that mean I need to install Windows Services for Unix on the FSMO and set it as the NIS server?
edit: ok this is for college (i'm in a network technology class and we are working with linux but we have been working with windows up to this point) therefore, I really dont know much about linux.
