Linux domain controller like system?


Is there some way to let linux clients verify passwords on a server like
the NT domain controller system?
I want to set up ceveral clients, but with one server so that I don't have to
add users on all the clients every time.
Thanks for any input.

NIS/NIS+ ... network yellow pages.

You can also use PAM, and decide
whatever you want to run it against
(LDAP, a database, ... )


Cheers,
Tink

Just one more question: how about mounting the users' home directory on the client after logging in using NIS?
I want to keep the home directories on the server.

Piece of cake with NIS ... all you need to do is
set-up NFS, and make the workstation boot
and mount /home of the server via fstab.

Tink
