Solaris-AD Integration Update Coming24 April 2007 · Filed in Information
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.Tags: ActiveDirectory · Interoperability · Kerberos · LDAP · Microsoft · Samba · Solaris · UNIX · Windows Previous Post: Samba in Solaris-AD Integration Next Post: SSHjail in Centralized Environments
