Hi Linux experts,
My office has a linux (CentOS) email server running Sendmail & Dovecot IMAP. It was configured by the IT Manager so that when a user is created on the Windows 2008 domain, the same user email account will also be available in the Linux Server.
- domain\john.doe user is created on AD
- firstname.lastname@example.org is automatically available in the Linux Email server.
- The login will be same as AD's (john.doe), and password is also the same as the AD's
I want to learn the configuration behind it. However I don't know where to start to look for information. I was wondering if it uses the OpenLDAP, but as I followed the directions from OpenLDAP in CentOS, I don't see any configs done in those config file. So, I think it might not be using OpenLDAP.
Can anyone suggest what could be the mechanism for this auto linkage? Sorry, I am a novice in Linux, hopefully I am expressing myself OK. Thank you.
