    If your environment is windows based, use Windows AD.

    Presumably you currently have a mixed OS environment.  Do you have a dominant OS at the moment?  How are users currently managed?

    Accepted Solution

    This kind of answers costs 5000¬ from a consulting company, not 500 points from EE...

    However, if you like Windows go for Vintela.
    Bringing Linux and UNIX computers into AD lets administrators use standard Windows server tools for basic administrative tasks. This simplification of the management routine in a cross-platform environment is an excellent starting point for conserving IT resources. If you need to integrate Linux and UNIX with AD, VAS is a good choice.
    Keep in mind however that ActiveDirectory REALLY SUCKS! It's the worst LDAP implementation available on the market. It's really bad.

    Symark's PowerPassword is just for UNIX/Linux, no Windwos.

    Centrify Suite 2008 is the same of Vintela, but costs way too much.

    About FOXt 's BoKS, I don't really know it

    Sun's LDAP implementation is like any other Sun product: a robust and reliable monster. Use it, if you dare :)
