SAMBA redundancy... PDCs...
Posted on 2002-07-10
I currently have 2 Win2k servers acting much like a PDC and BDC. They both can authenticate users logging in if the other is not around. That works great however I would like to switch to a more stable platform after a month of hotfixes doing nasty things.
I have read that Samba does not support user-list synchronization in the fashion of Windows BDC/PDC. Redundancy is the goal here. Would it be possible to synch the config files, password files, user profiles between two samba boxes using something akin to rsync?
My biggest fear here is the mainboard goes bad and all the other hardware redundancys become meaningless. If anyone has suggestions on doing such a user-authentication redundancy it would be apreciated.
