Directory service for Ubuntu server farm

Hi Experts,

I have a requirement to deploy a directory server (equivalent for MS-Active Directory) on Ubuntu and manage users/security in my production server farm. (Ubuntu 12.04 Servers)

I would prefer if I have a GUI to manage users. (may be logging to the directory server)

What are the recommendations for this ?  Also I have existing MS Active Directory in this same environment, is it advisable to use the windows AD ?

Please advise !

I would recommend using Zentyal Server for this. It includes LDAP and Samba4, and can be it's own DC or added to an M$ domain. It is very easy to setup and maintain, and is administered via web-browsers. The commercial version includes support, but you could probably go with the community version. It is based on Ubuntu...

Depends on what you need.
Will you have shell services and passwors authentication ONLY everywhere - ok zentyal.

Not in my case - we dont have interactive users almost at all, so we use puppet (hint - it can add SSH authorizrd keys for admins)
