Which things need to authenticate?  At my current workplace, I've set up
Samba with an LDAP backend.  Linux machines, switches, web applications
and various devices authenticate directly against the LDAP backend;
Windows machines (or anything which needs Windows authentication and
file services) use Samba.  It all plays nicely and satisfies all our
current needs.  What are your needs?  Do you have a specific requirement
for Active Directory (or equivalent)?

Unless your network is very small, I'd recommend using a minimum of two,
so that your whole system doesn't fail because of a problem on your only
domain controller.


It is impolite to tell a man who is carrying you on his shoulders that
his head smells.
