How to authenticate users at once - We have users in AIX and in Active Directory in Windows 2000 Server and now we want to authenticate users in one login - we dont want users to login separately in AIX after logging into Windows 2000 Active Directory. Is it possible to Synchronize users between these two Platform ? Or is there a easy to complete the task.

There is kerberos, but this means addin one more system to do both authentications, and detaching all Windows 2000 computrs from Active Directory, including servers etc

Wouldn't it have been easier to say "Not really for real users, no"?-).
I'm sure you can set up the usual breqw of things for samba (so that samba "users" authenticate to the DC), but really no feasible route for sharing the same login in both worlds.... Certainly no real "signle sign-on" solution that I'm aware of.
RSA SecureID might be a way to do it, but.... I've never used it in AIX, only other unices and windoze, so it might not work that great.... Or it might work splendidly:-).
But you'd still need to somehow "sync" the userbase in AIX and the M$ AD... Perhaps via some script based on ldap?

FacetCorp has a solution that will allow the single sign on for network services for AIX.
