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.

u will most likely need windows services for unix. also all your linux clients should have samba and a kerberos client. samba 3 from what i know already supports kerb5 and ntlmv2.

http://www.wown.com/articles_tutoria...Directory.html

check out those two websites since they will give u ideas on how to do this.
another thing u should know is about how active directory authenticates users. ssl, ntlm, kerberos, ldap, etc. it supports all those and more. so it all depends on how u wanna integrate linux into the network.....

Do you want to authenticate through NIS or AD? If it is through AD, I am making an little (simple) how-to to do it. I will post it tonight ot tomorrow on my site. If you need it before then let me know and I'll mail you the doc.

Here is the link to the doc. If you have any questions let me know. It is a Slackware specific in some parts.

Forgot the link:

NIS is *nix authentication, AD is Windows authentication so AFAIK you want to pick one or the other and then either add NIS to the Windows machines or configure Samba to join the AD domain, but not both.
