I've never been a Windows user, but I'm curious to see how the AD
integration works in Linux, since it looks like we may need to have one
or two Windows desktops and I don't realy want to start setting up
Windows infrastructure. If I can have Samba as a domain controller that
makes things a lot simpler.
I have one question tho, the documentation suggests using the Microsoft
tools to administer the domain... is there any equivalent on Linux for
doing this? I'd hate to have to install a Windows machine simply to
administer a Samba domain controller that was set up to avoid having to
install Windows infrastructure.
If Windows is required, what's the minimum installation/setup to
correctly administer a Samba domain, I guess I could run something in
Virtualbox to achieve this.
