Jason Zions pointed us to this newly revised Windows Security and Directory Services for UNIX solution guide, still in beta.

Description of the Guide and access instructions from Luis Camara Manoel, Program Manager, Collaboration Solutions Team:

"The Windows Security and Directory Services for UNIX v1.0 Beta guide provides several solutions for enabling interoperability between UNIX and Windows infrastructures. The solutions included in this Beta release describe multiple options to achieve two different end states:

 

    • How to enable UNIX clients to use Windows Active Directory Kerberos for authentication while continuing to use a UNIX-based store for authorization.
    • How to enable UNIX clients to use Windows Active Directory Kerberos for authentication and use Active Directory LDAP for authorization.


To download and read the solution online, please visit Microsoft Connect:

https://connect.microsoft.com/default.aspx. Follow registration procedures and select “The Windows Security and Directory Services Guide for UNIX v1.0” program to enroll and download the beta."

Per Jason:  "Although the guide gives step-by-step instructions for setting up AD integration only for Solaris 9 and for RedHat 9, it's pretty easy to see how it would extend to lots of other UNIX and UNIX-like systems."

To download the paper you'll need a Passport Account (the link above will prompt you for one) which is used to send updates, if you wish, on new releases and an announcement when the guide is final.

Let us and Luis know what you think!
