open suse for production server
Posted on 2011-10-26
Configured suse linux enterprise 11.0 (procured subscription) on dell server to work as samba domain controller with the passwd backend as openldap every thing is working fine, now there is a requirement of the similar setup in branch office but the management is not in a posistion to invest on procuring the suse enterprise linux hence iam planning to install open suse at the branch office which should only work as samba domain controller , squid proxy and dhcp for around 50 users. Please suggest me
1. can open suse be used for the production server for the above mentioned services.
2. If yes then whicl installing the openldap server should i select as replication server as in the main office i have installed the ldapserver as standalone.
