Solaris-AD Integration Update Coming

The last update to the Solaris 10-Active Directory integration instructions was in October of last year, over six months ago. Since that time, Sun has released another update to Solaris (Solaris 10 11/06, or Update 3) and I have been able to gather some additional information on using an Active Directory-aware version of Samba to help with the process (much like described in the latest version of the Linux-AD instructions).

The new version will use Kerberos for authentication, LDAP for account information, and Samba to do the “heavy lifting” of joining Active Directory, creating the necessary objects, and creating the keytab and keytab entries on Solaris.

I hope to post the updated integration instructions within the next few days, before I have to leave for a business trip to Canada.
