Question UNIX in MS Win2003 Domain


Can I make a UNIX or LINUX machine a member of MS Active Directory 2003?

Not too sure if you can make the box a member of the domain, but you may want to look at Microsoft's UNIX integration tools to see if there is a migration or connectivity tool that will achieve what you want. They are called Services for UNIX (SFU) and can be found here.

If its just user authentication you are looking for it can be done with PAM and the krb5 module against a windows 2003 ad.

Is Samba what you are looking for http://www.samba.org ?

winbind may be what you need

together with the nss lib and pam module.
I did integrate a few linux machines with windows 2000 domains.
They work fine.
