LDAP and Active Directory

How can I configure LDAP in Suse 9.0 to be communicated with a Windows 2000 Activate Directory

what do you mean by communicate? i've looked into OpenLDPA and Active directory Synchronisation and replication and documentation on it is next to nothing, i'm almost certain it is impossable, but feel free to prove me wrong, if you do make another post here so i can see what you have done.

is a good site to look into i've asked the question there before and got my responce, it was a while ago so i can't remember it and the site is down at the moment, but there might be some answers for you there.

if your talking about just getting information out of Active directory use the Openldap tools

If you want to authenticate Linux clients using Active Directory it is possible with a lot of configuraiton using OpenLDAP and PAM modules.

okay, yes you can go the pam & ldap root if you want, it's pretty easy. i'll post you my /etc/ldap.conf and a pam module tomorrow that will allow you to logon using your AD password or you join the linux box to the AD domain using winbind.

there are some scripts i've been working on there that will help you join a windows AD domain

if they don't work then i've writtern a how to guide on my local lug website.

it's using pop3 pam module, and i wouldn't use that pam module either it requires both a local user and AD user. i've got to get around to writting a new one.

If you bump up to Suse 9.3 or 10 it's a VERY simple one button Yast process! Try it out, it will be worth your time.
