My organization has a Unix Domain which runs an LDAP for authentication. We also have a couple of tools that run on Windows platforms only. Currently one of those tools is going through an update and the customer is looking to fully integrate this box into the network to include authentication. Any suggestions would be welcome as to how to do this.
Windows Server 2008r2 Standard server. Not running AD - the customer does not want AD at this time. Most of the backbone network is run on Solaris machines serving data to Mac clients. Users authenticate through the LDAP which includes all attributes of their positions and responsibilities. I.E. the admins have an Admin flag on their accounts. Limited use of groups etc.
