Making RH9 a Domain Controller

hi e-e,

       I'm having RH9.0 and I'm planning to make it as a domain controller. How can I do this?


Thanks,

You will need to ensure that Samba (client & server portions) is installed on the machine as this is the MS Windows-networking interface that the Linux box will require.

This subject matter is covered amply by the Samba HOWTO guide (Chapter 4 particularly): http://us3.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/ .

Unfortunately, this is one of those subjects that I need to get around to, so it's a case of pointers-only from me.  Hope the above gets you started until another expert can shed some better light.

setting up a domain controller is better in Windows 2003 server than in RH9.0? Which one is recomended?

Active Directory in Windows is good, but if you are just gonna use the PDC fo authentication, then linux is a stable OS. Though Windows would have dynamic DHCP/DNS which can be done in linux too but a hard way of doing it.
If you want to learn, then go the linux way. If you want it to be simple and managable by novice users, then windows.

Hope this helps.
