No Solaris-AD Integration Update

I’m sorry, folks, but I’m not going to have the time or the resources to publish an update to my existing instructions for integrating Solaris 10 into Active Directory. Quite some time ago I had posted that I planned on creating an update to the original instructions so as to incorporate some lessons learned, but it keeps get pushed aside for other tasks that are more important and more relevant to my day-to-day work. Rather than keep readers hanging on for something that will likely never appear, I’d rather just be upfront and frank about the situation. As much as I’d love to spend some time working on the Solaris-AD integration situation and documenting my findings, I just don’t have the time. Sorry.

    That’s too bad, I was looking forward to this.

    Hi Scott,

    What about Linux AD integration version 5 ? What is the status ? :)

    Do we need a version 5? :)

    I’m not sure yet, we’ll have to see how things play out. I think that’s something that I may be able to squeeze in, as I suspect it will take me less time to do that than it would have to do the Solaris update.

    Stay tuned.

    Hey its no biggie! Ive recently stumbled upon “http://www.likewisesoftware.com/”.
    I plan on using that in my mixed *nix environment.

    We definitely need a version 5 ! :)
    Would be nice to re-boost the subject… It’s extremely useful and I believe you’ve reached a lot of people through the other versions.

    I’ve been recently playing with Linux/AD authentication and although I could go quite far with the ldap/krb/etc solution, I believe we are still missing A LOT of polishing to make it shine and be really production ready.

    Anyway, I’ll stop my comment here to avoid being more off-topic than I already am and keep on waiting nicely for version 5 to post more details there. ;)

    @FUAST-C:
    I know likewise open, but I still think it’s a pitty they don’t support RFC 2307 AD schema extension as backend for IDMAP on the open(free) version.
    It still might be a good alternative for many people.
