My main network is based on Windows 2003 Active Directory. I also have a smaller NIS-based Linux network. Currently I have to keep many hundreds of accounts synchronised between the two networks (which I can't do). I just create the accounts in both places, and set both passwords - then it's up to the user to mess it up.
I'm looking for a better solution.
At the moment I'm looking at using the Microsoft supplied "Identity Management for UNIX" tools. Is this the way to go (and why) or what other options are there?
