Red Hat Enterprise Workstation Authenticating Windows User

Hi,

I'm not new to Linux and Windows admin, but have never seen this particular question posed on EE.

My operating system is Red Hat Enterprise Workstation 3 running on an x86 system.

What I'd like to do is to hook the EW to an Active Directory domain such that I can use the Linux login prompt to log into the domain using AD authentication.  I'd also like to put the workstation in the domain (e.g. by first creating a computer account in AD then attaching the Linux system to this.)  Would assume some sort of SAMBA functionality might be used, but is any of this possible with the current version of EW 3?

Would normally research this kind of stuff, but am in a time press...

Thank you!

Hi,

   I'm trying to implement what you say. They are two articles I found so far are quite useful:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/itsolutions/migration/unix/usecdirw/default.mspx
http://www.hut.fi/cc/docs/kerberos/nss_ldap.html

   They both use LDAP instead of Samba.

Regards,

Wesly

Hello,

Thanks again for both your responses!

The answers put me on a track to get me enough information in regards to the question if this would be a complex task.  For my particular installation, the solutions mentioned would require modification to the Domain Controllers, which will not be possible in my Enterprise Environment.

Think I did find the functionality needed with Xandros Linux Desktop-- it will authenticate to Active Directory out of the box with no mods needed to the domain controllers.  We are going to evaluate this solution.

Best regards,

Don
