Domain and Directory Services under Linux
I'm currently researching for a way to create a Domain for Windows users and an Active Directory under Linux. I've googled around for various methods of doing so and I wanted to see if I'm in the right path.
First there's Samba along with OpenLDAP. I've encountered this method a lot and it seems it's the most popular way of doing it. Now I'm talking about making the server a PDC, doesn't sound like it's simple to implement and I've read that the current version of Samba doesn't fully support AD.
Then I found 389 Directory Server directory.fedoraproject.org/ and there is a good guide that sorta guides you trough the process of creating a PDC and using 389.
What I'm looking to do is:
- Create a PDC in a Linux server
- There has to be a Directory, along with policies.
- The directory has to replicate to at least other 2 servers
Also, if such solution is posible, is there a way to migrate an Active Directory to another solution?
Thanks for your time
