Q

Can I replicate an AD server to a Linux Samba server?

Is there any way to replicate an AD server to a Linux Samba server? Basically is it possible to set up a Samba server as a BDC within a Windows 2003 AD environment?

While third-party operating systems cannot directly participate as DCs in an Active Directory domain, you have several options to allow for interoperability including:
  • Realm trusts between Unix Kerberos realms and AD domains
  • Windows Services for Unix, currently available as a free download with improvements being made in R2.
  • Directory Synchronization and provisioning solutions such as Microsoft Identity Integration Server (MIIS).
