a quick question about the possibilities of a linux
the reason is simple i dont want to have to create accounts on local machines and on the server/s, sync passwords ect for windows clients.
am i right in thinking that pam will work for linux clients?
Novell use edirectory with a client and is very good.
micro$oft have a domain controller that that you have to login to,
but what options do Linux
I have read that samba 2/3 has a PDC mode but isn't very scalable, i think 3 is better because it uses ldap.
is it possible to setup just ldap and have windows users connect to it like a domain controller, creating there account on the fly and keeping there password in sync?
what other options do we have?
and if your feeling extra generous what about group policies? again Novell uses zenworks micro$oft 2003 doming and linux??
