Re: Will the Win2K AD support LDAP authentication?

I have several Linux and Sun Unix boxes that I would like to
authenticate against a single repository of users. Will the Win2K
Active Directory support this?
You can use pam_ldap to authenticate against AD. In combination with a
recent version of nss_ldap you can also keep user information like uid,
uidNumber, etc in AD.
BTW using Kerberos (pam_krb5) with nss_ldap should also be possible. If you
intend to use pam_ldap with AD you should think about using LDAP over SSL.
This will require a Certification Autority on your W2k server.
