single-logon

I have several linux servers , there are many users in each these server , many users have login ID in different servers , so I would like to use single authentication , can advise what is the best tool ( easy to setup / maintenance & stable ) for single-logon , is it openldap ? is it compatible with windows ( if it is ok , I also want to integrate it with my windows server ) ?

Re: single-logon

You are correct, LDAP is the way to go. I consider that Fedora/Red Hat Directory server is the best directory that you can use.

>>> is it compatible with windows

Yes, you can say that, you can enable windows to authenticate via LDAP if you create a SAMBA PDC+LDAP.

You can also replicate windows information in an Active Directory Server to Fedora Directory Server.

Re: single-logon

Hello,

there are two additional ways:

- kerberos client
- winbind and samba

Both possibilities will allow you to authenticate users directly to a Microsoft Active Directory.

Hope this helps.
