Re: [K12OSN] OT: Authentication server options



Thanks! I've looked at and wanted to try Fedora 389 but I am concerned
about the support for Samba/Windows Domain.

The two links I've found describing how to do this are:
http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Howto:Samba and
http://wiki.neddix.com/How_to_setup_the_CentOS_Directory_Server_%28389_Directory_Server%29

I guess I'll just have to try a few times and see if I can get it working.

Thanks!
Dave
