Linux & Active Directory

I used to deal with Linux in Active Directory quite a bit, especially with Winbind, Samba and Active Directory. It’s amazing how quickly things change, and I already feel as if my knowledge is atrophying at an exponential rate…

Ted Haeger goes on to show how Linux desktops are now integrating into Active Directory more and more seamlessly, with less and less work on the admin side. It used to be that you had to edit your PAM stack, tweak LDAP lookups, mess about with Kerberos and the like. Now it all works through a nice GUI at setup. What more could you ask for.

I already have a test Win2k3 AD domain at home, living inside a VMWare machine. It’s not been powered up in a good few months. I’m also warming to the likes of OpenSUSE, and am spending more and more time inside OpenSUSE 10.3 (Factory edition though… still in development) on my laptop. I have to say… it’s very nice. I think the inevitable will come in the next week or so, and I’ll test out OpenSUSE 10.3 with Active Directory 2003 to see how it goes.

One thought on “Linux & Active Directory”

  1. At the CL, we recently switched to using AD for logon with our Fedora Core and SuSE machines. It all works rather smoothly and is a big improvement over the old /etc/passwd synchronisation scheme it replaced.
