My question is.. can Samba 3, emulate an Active Directory domain... or can it only "interact" with an already existing AD domain? I'm confused onthis.. last year I thought I read that Samba3 would be able to replace Windows 2000 DC's..
So what is the exact scoop ive read but ive been unable to find an answer??
Can a Standalone Samba 3 server be an AD Domain Controller??
I'm more excited, however, about Novell's Nterprise services for linux. I have set up Novell's eDirectory/NDS on linux, and it works very well. It'll be interesting to see how all the linux progression moves over the next year or two.
Oooh....Windows 2000 server. Scary. I'm not impressed with 2000 Server. Active Directory works allright with Windows 2003, but it was a mess in 2000. Active Directory still doesn't compare to eDirectory/NDS....
Why would you need to edit the registry to join a domain hosted by samba? That makes no sense. If the domain is set up right on samba (it's pretty straight forward), then that is not necessary. You simply join the domain like you would a real windows domain.
