Domain Controller for Linux?


Greetz,

Although still a Linux "new guy"...I have a linux server running in my house...and I would like it to act as a domain controller for all my windows machines (authenticating users to log on to their machines). I am sure there is a real easy answer, but I need somebody to point me in the right direction...

Hi!

You can use samba (www.samba.org).

Regards,

Augusto

There is plenty of documentation of how to do this on samba.org.

HERE would be a good place to start
