Active Directory for Linux


I have Active Directory on a Windows server where my Linux machine need to authenticate against it. (Creating an LDAP in linux is not an option)

Help! How do I do this? On the server side? On the client linux side?

Thanks for the link!

From what I read, it says only kerberos has to be set up. It makes no mention of configuring client ldap?

Anything special need to be done on the server with Active directory?

From the link, in SUSSE it says to modify /etc/security/pam_unix2.conf.

I am using Red Hat and am unable to find a comparable file.

What is the file known in Red Hat?

Yes, RHEL 4.

I'm not sure where the file is.
