We're a heavy Microsoft shop and I'm standing up our first Linux servers and wish to intergrate them into Active Directory. We're using Red Hat and the Oracle Unbreakable Linux (Oracle sponsered RHEL) and I want to intergrate the systems into AD for ease of control and to ensure our existing IT policies can be enforced. I've done some work with Ubuntu based servers and used LikewiseOpen to intergrate into AD with some success. But the limited lab work was very small scale compared to production roll-out I'm planning now. I'm curious to know the best methods for RHEL and if Likewise is the best way to go? Also what are the pitfalls?

Software/Hardware used:
RHEL, Active Directory 2008, Linux

    Samba is a free and open-source SW that implements of Service Message Block / SMB or Common Internet File System / CIFS networking protocol mainly used by MS. The main advantage is to implement an AD compatible Domain Controller by using this. Remember, u have to use Samba version 4. There r also LDAP and Kerberos, but it is better to use Samba. Remember, this is just an info. Please see for better Info and Guide
