Windows 2003 Server and ubuntu as 2nd domaincontroller?
I am pretty new to Linux. I already used it a quite while, but only the basics.
Well my problem now:
I have a Windows 2003 server which is a master domaincontroller.
I'd like to have the Ubuntu to act as a secondary domaincontroller.
I understand the next:
- There has to be a reserve IP for ubuntu.
- Windows needs zonetransfer configuration.
- Ubuntu needs bind9 (maybe not necessary?).
- Ubuntu requires a domaincontroller package (samba,likewise or openldap)?
I looked all over the internet for a solution, but I am not able to find a good package to use my ubuntu as a secondary domaincontroller server.
Can anyone help me finding for good tutorials, or help me with my problem? I really want to learn to use ubuntu linux, but it is very tough..
I need to learn how to configure bind9 for linux and need to find a good package for ubuntu to act it as a second domaincontroller
My IP for Win2003 Server:
DNS Server: 192.168.1.2
I've never seen an actual production environment where Ubuntu Server has been stood up as a dedicated Domain Controller. I am guessing this would require a lot of Kerberos / LDAP and Samba configurations if even possible. Sounds like a recipe for disaster if you ask me. I would just use Linux & LDAP for both primary and slave.
