installing MS domain controller into a samba domain as 2nd DC and have it replicate....
Posted on 2008-10-14
I have a Samba domain and it's using LDAP Directory server. Is it possible to bring up a second domain controller with Microsoft Active Directory and then have the two talk back and forth?
I know that OpenLDAP is 'supposed' to be able to sync directory data to a Windows DC, but I have no idea how it's done or if it can be done without the Microsoft box being the first Domain Controller in the domain.
Normally I wouldn't be trying something like this, but there are some things like RIS, and IIS authentication that only work well with AD. Can someone tell me how you can install an Active Directory box as the second box in a Linux domain? And if it's even possible, how you can get the data back and forth between the two?
