Domain controller on centos?

Post by slice16 » 2006/06/13 09:51:45

I am wanting to setup a whole domain using only linux systems. Is this possible to setup? If so, what kind of packages should i be looking out for?

At the moment, we have teh systems with no central authentication (other than file level), could do with something like AD.

AD is LDAP ---> OpenLDAP

Although AD is LDAP-compliant a samba server cannot participate as a domain controller in a native Win2k or later domain.
