I'm a trainer for Red Hat, preparing to teach a course on nifty
directory services, and have been doing a little research on related

I stumbled upon last weeks thread re: group policy on Linux / Samba
machines and thought you folks might be interested in the following.

A company called Nitrobit has a group policy implementation that works
in conjunction with Samba and any LDAP server (though they use OpenLDAP
in their examples). Editing is done using the MMC, policies are stored
in the directory, and applied with a client app.


Dunno how good it is yet - but I'll be trying this out myself in the
next month and when I do, I'll let the list know how things go.

Since this is a common question of a lot of AD admins, maybe this is
worth adding to the FAQ?
