As some of you might know domains with active directory are a great way to make sure that your users are able to have a consistent experience across any machine they login to, while also providing adequate security. If you didn’t know that, well now you do.
You might also know that a copy of the Microsoft products to do the job aren’t cheap, and aren’t cost effective if you have a small business or want to set up a domain at your home.
Well the open source community has your solution, it is possible with just about any flavor of Linux, to create a fully functional domain complete with roaming profiles and active directory. I am not going to detail exactly how to go about doing that in this post, but I will be posting a decent how to in the near future.
