Hi Experts,

I’m planning to install Active directory and exchange server in a Microsoft Business 2000 server.

   a. Resources on How to Install AD in business server
   b. Resources on How to install Exchange server in business server

  a. Resources How to authenticate Fedora in ingle sing on from windows active directory authentication.

This organization is using some LINUX application on Fedora distribution (Subversion System, XPlanner, Request Tracker)

They need a single sing on from the Windows clients (using same user name password for the Active directory authentication) to all this application and for the shared folders in the Fedora operating system.

Please provide me necessary guide lines and resources to this?

    Accepted Solution

    Please confirm that you mean Small Business Server 2000?  The installation of AD and Exchange are part of the initial configuration and installation of your server.  Please read the manual.
