Active Directory Linux DHCP/DNS


I am trying to setup Active Directory to work along side linux DHCP/DNS running on redhat.

We currently already have DHCP/DNS running on Linux, I am looking into tying those into AD. Has anyone done this before?

Is it as simple as running dcpromo.exe and pointing to the Linux DNS box as the primary DNS server?

What about DHCP? Linux is all very new to me, so any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

no probs. servers is for clients and servers, networking is really more for the bit inbetween...

this all depends on what you want each of them to manage. If you want some hosts within yourdomain.com to be handled in AD, and some to be handled in BIND (assuming that's the DNS program you're using), then you will have some major issues. If you want one to replicate the other, that's doable. The way lots of companies get the two to play together nicely is to assign a subdomain to AD and let it be authoritative. So, you'd have BIND running on linux, responsible for *.yourdomain.com. AD running on windows would be responsible for *.corp.yourdomain.com (or whatever you want to call it - lots of people do one per windows domain and lots of people use CORP ;-)).

DNS architecture at an enterprise level is actually a somewhat complex thing. It's a good idea to work it all out on paper (or whiteboard) before you try to implement anything. find yourself a systems architect and build something cool
