Thanks for your answer.
I start to wonder if Windows sync is worth the trouble. At my site we
will probably not implement password sync as the AD-side is very
restrictive about installing anything.
I hear this all the time - AD admins are
very touchy about installing
anything, especially some piece of random open source software that's
going to intercept clear text passwords and send them who-knows-where
So what I get is basically a
skeleton that I have to populate with the posixUser attributes.
Another issue is groups in AD. I suppose those groups will become
regular unix-groups on the directory server side,
Yes. But note - not posix groups
(posixGroup) but plain groups
which might not
be enough for all policing needs (may need netgroups in addition).
We will probably have maximum a few hundred users in the directory,
you think Windows-sync is worth the bother?
I suggest you take a look at Penrose
