ADS <==> FedoraDS <==> Linux/Unix Clients?


I have a certain query regarding the following structure:
Code:
    Active Directory Server
    ||
    ||
    Fedora Directory Server <=> Client(Linux | Fedora | Ubuntu | Solaris | HP)
Let me explain you what I want:

1.There is a company Active Directory Server under domain intinfra.com.As of now there are limited Windows Desktop Machine under that domain.I have few Linux / Unix Machines which I want to authenticate through ADS(which are presently not under ADS).Why? Becoz' everytime I need to delete the users whenver they leave the project.Thats Cumbersome.

So what I want is Setup Fedora DS(Wonder if We can do that without Fedora DS).Now I can ads join to Fedora DS(I have administrative privileges for ADS).What I really want to know is:

If I join Fedora DS to ADS then all employee can login to the Linux Machine through their login credentials. I dont want that to happen.We have 3000 employee in intinfra Domain but We are only 30 Admins. I only want those 30-40 admins to login restrictly.Is it possible to restrict at FedoraDS level.

2.Say, I joined ADS and fedora DS and say after 30 days one of System Admin left the company.So his name will be removed from ADS. Is it possible that ADS and Fedora DS are synchronized in such a way that a user whose name gets deleted in ADS, gets deleted too from fedora .Do fedora DS has the capability to synchronize to ADS everytime.

Pls Suggest.

I Googled it around and found this link http://www.redhat.com/f/pdf/rhas/NetgroupWhitepaper.pdf
for answer to 1st Question.
The Answer is "yes" through Netgroup.
Do yu agree with this?

Also, I found http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/d...dows_Sync.html for second question.

Why would you want to bother using FDS if AD works? You seem to have thought up some less than desirable solutions. Not horrible, but unneccessary. Just install the MSSFU schema extensions for AD and then use that as your (mostly) posix compliant LDAP server. As for the Admin only logins, again don't use netgroups, that *IS* pretty horrible, just use standard group memberships and only permit members of the admin group to log into a server within sshd_config or your /etc/security/access for system wide access.
