I got into a job with a domain of about 70 Windows PCs and about 100 Linux machines.
The domains are quite old, and I mean Samba 4 and NIS old. Obviously one wants something newer, as in AD on the Windows side and Kerberos/LDAP on the Linux side. Preferably with a single user-database.
Question to the more experienced members:
Should I go
- Windows based and use something like an OpenLDAP Proxy for the Linux-LDAP
- Samba 4 based AD with the same
- Any of the above with Linux attributes added to the user entries in LDAP
What are thoughts and experiences on this? Especially is Samba 4 stable enough to be used in a production environment? What experiences with having Linux machines running in AD directly or via LDAP Proxy/Kerberos Proxy?
