Joining Domain


Hi

I plan on running scientific Linux or CentOS as SERVER and OpenSUSE on the workstations.

When using Linux do you also join workstations to the server(domain) like with windows server or is it workgroup based?

Can I just mount a network drive from any workstation on the network?

Do you use the server as a gateway?

Well I'm not sure what your asking. If you are not needing access to a windows network then you can scp and ssh any place you want. If you need access to a windows pc or domain you can use samba to access a windows share. As far as the domain is concerned you can try a product call likewise-open. It has everything you need to join a linux box to a windows domain. This would allow you to use your login anywhere in the domain. It's easy to set up and free. (they do have a paid product) Let me know if this helps or if I'm readying what you want wrong. Thanks
