Hello Everyone, I have been tasked to work on consolidating
authentication to achieve single sign-on using Active Directory.
We have mix of Linux and Windows Hosts. All Linux hosts do local
authentication currently and Windows hosts authenticates Active directory.
I have been thinking of using Samba to authenticate Linux Hosts against
Active Directory. I am fairly confident of configuring straight Linux to
AD authentication. But we have 2 Active Directory forests. AD2 is
trusted by AD1 and all the Linux hosts will be part of AD1.
The idea is to have a AD1 resource and AD2 users. So we will need Linux
Hosts to authenticate users of both AD1 and AD2. I am not sure about
how to map uid/gid and also weather kerboros will be able to
authenticate both Domains.
If you guys can throw some ideas on how to achieve this, that will be great.
