CentOS 5 :: Setting Up As Primary Domain Controller

Aug 24, 2009

I have setup Ubuntu servers as LAMP machines but that's pretty much it.

I need to work on an existing CentOS server that I will see for the first time tomorrow. I am told that, as of right now, it is "just serving the internet." The goal is to set it up to be a primary domain controller by which I mean:

1) A user should be able to login to the server from any of the workstations and then see their server stored documents

2) The clients will be a mixed bag of Linux, Windows and Mac machines

I could use a push in the right direction as to what I need to do to get this all setup. I know how to setup users and home folders (I use webmin typically and I understand that there is a version for CentOS) but clearly there is more that I need to do. I am really curious as to how I would map the necessary drives on the client machines upon login and have the users have automatic access to their data regardless of the client machine they log in to.

Server :: Primary Domain Controller Would Be A Better Way To Manage Logins?

Feb 17, 2011

We have a LAN with mixed Windows workstations win 2000, winxp, vista, win 7, linux servers all in a workgroup. Most applications used on the LAN are windows based, with a growing number of python apps. A friend suggested a Primary Domain Controller would be a better way to manage logins, resources etc. I don't wont to use a Windows based PDC, what would you suggest as a linux based PDC? I have heard about TURNKEY PDC, but it uses Samba 3 and apparently doesn't handle Active Directory in Windows.

I wish to promote a "normal" installation of Suse as a domain controller with LDAP so the other computers in my network need to use a centralised username and password to log onto the machines.The only documentation I can find refers back to suse 9.

Fedora Networking :: Windows Sever 2k3 Domain Controller / Use Machine With Samba As Secondary Domain Controller?

Apr 28, 2009

At the school i work in i have a server2k3 server that provides a domain to all the windows clients, aswell as a fedora server that acts as an imaging machine and webserver.

Im rather concious of the fact that if for any reason the Server2k3 server was to die there is no backup of active directory, or anything that can take its place whilst a replacement is found.

So is it possible to use a fedora machine with samba as a secondary domain controller? so it can be used as a login server, and has a copy of AD.

OpenSUSE Network :: Domain- Incapable MS Windows Version To Join Suse Domain?

Jun 9, 2010

I was wondering if there is any way to enable an MS Windows client that is otherwise unable of joining a domain to join a domain controlled by (open)SUSE? Is that inability only for joining a Windows based domain but a client that runs XP Home Edition or similar domain- incapable version of Windows could join a domain if it was controlled by Linux?Pardon my newbie style, but answer doesn't have to be detailed step-by-step, just yes/no answer with some pointers would do. I am not new to linux but new to network services... search engines weren't friendly when asked this question at the search bar...

OpenSUSE Network :: Can't Login To WinNT Domain Controller With 11.2?

Apr 16, 2010

I have the following problem: I can't authorize with my central WinNT 4.0 domain controller. I set up all parameters in YaST, but still can't see any shares or get inet access.I am using gnome and it shows several windows workgroups. While I am trying to open it, gnome shows a window to request my login credentials. I am setting up all thing right and then it shows it again. I tried smbclient utility to login, but still can't login.What can I do about it?Also I have some problems with my http proxy: suse doesn't sent it my login/password while I can easily work with proxy, that doesn't request it

Server :: Domain Controller On A Current Windows Domain?

Dec 30, 2010

I'm working for a smallish non-profit that has gone through some recent growing pains. We have two sites that are currently without a domain controller, and no money for MS licenses, so I was thinking of trying to add a couple of additional Linux machines (we already run Linux for web services internally, and I've set up a test case previously to see if I could get a server to join the domain, which was a success) and was trying to find out if I can get them to act as Domain Controllers without replacing the domain. The main issue that I'm having at those locations is drive mappings are not happening correctly against our DFS file servers. The one other location that had this issue had it go away when we added a local DC. The domain is a Server 2008 domain.

OpenSUSE Install :: Open Suse 11.3 Along With Win 2008 R2 OS - Error "Win2008 R2 Is Not Supported In Open Suse Installer"

Mar 6, 2011

I am trying to Install Open Suse 11.3 (burned as an ISO DVD) along with existing Win 2008 R2 OS. When I try to boot from the DVD it just logs in to Win2008 though boot from CD/DVD is enabled in the boot sequence. So i tried to mount the ISO and run from Windows ! BUT I get an error before installation starts telling that Win2008 R2 is not supported in open suse installer! Is there anything I can do to overcome this and install/retain both OS? In fact I am even trying to c hange my win2008 from R2 to Enterprise to see if I can overcome the problem!

OpenSUSE Network :: Replace Windows AD Domain In Suse?

May 29, 2010

At home I am using a Windows Server 2003 as Domain controller with Active Directory. My "client" computers are all currently running Windows XP. They all require CONTROL-ALT-DELETE and the user to enter their credentials before they will allow logon. Shared files reside on various other Server 2003 machines and have restrictions on so only specific users can access certain resources.

For example, I have the family finances and other important documents in a share named 'Private-Files', only members of the 'PrivateFiles' global group have access. Likewise, I have my movies sorted into their appropriate age categories - after all, I don't want my 5 year old son accidentally watching Aliens! So this all works but as you can imagine, the copies of Windows XP and Server 2003 are far from legitimate. I want to go legal and the only real way I can afford to do this is to switch over to Linux.

I have used Suse, Ubuntu, Fedora and a few other distros in the past and found that for ease of use, I want to use Ubuntu on the desktop computers but power the servers with Open Suse. The problem is, although I can install the OSes, I have no idea where to proceed from there - for example, how do I create a Domain in Suse? Where and how do I create domain users and groups? How do I set permissions on shares for the domain users?

OpenSUSE Install :: Cancel Windows Domain Membership Durin Suse Installation

Mar 25, 2010

I am installing SUSE 11.2, and went with the default options, now it reached the point of "Windows Domain Membership". At job I do not remember the right names, so I tried some but I get an error message which says "cannot use the group "WORKGROUP" for Linux authentication", etc.So I would like to avoid windows authentication, but at this point I do not see this option. I can only try domain names or abort the installation. What could I do here in order to finish the installation without windows memebership?

Debian Configuration :: Lenny Or Sid As A Domain Controller?

Feb 18, 2010

Can Debian act as a Windows Domain Controller? I'm just curious because my boss recently tossed out some old servers and I grabbed them. They're good machines but I can't afford to pay $1000 for Server 2003 R2 just to setup a domain at my place and run Endpoint Protection and such. I've never used a domain setup in Linux before so I thought I'd ask and possibly try to, if Debian/Linux is capable of such a thing.

Server :: Login When Domain Controller (DC) Fails?

Jun 27, 2011

I joined my Ubuntu 1004 LST to Windows 2003 AD.

it always frozen my ssh login window when the DC crashes. when the DC crashes, the putty won't give me the password prompt and will go inactive directly after a while no matter what username(local or domain users) I give

is it possible to avoid to check domain users before it gives me the password prompt? or, we can make it to check if the user is a local user first?

Ubuntu :: Equivalent Of MS Domain Controller For Small Network Of 40 Machines?

Jun 23, 2010

I am looking for a way to deploy Linux in the same manner as a MS network. I want my desktop clients to authenticate against a DC, but Im not sure what would take the place of a Domain Controller in Linux. In addition, I am not sure if I could be able to manage user rights via a central server.

I have read about Samba as a domain controller, but Im not sure if that is what I want. In addition, I have read about LDAP, but again Im not sure if that is what I need to use. When I researched RADIUS servers, I was even more confused.
