Open Source Tools to integrate with MS Active Directory

MS Active Directory is very widely deployed in many industries. To take the pain out of integration with MS Active Directory with your Linux Box, take a look at Likewise Open. Some of the key features are

  1. Joins non-Windows systems to Active Directory domains in a single step from the command line or from a GUI
  2. Authenticates users with a single user name and password on both Windows and non-Windows
  3. Enforces the same password policies for non-Windows users and Windows users
  4. Caches credentials in case your domain controller goes down
  5. Provides single sign-on for SSH and Putty
  6. No schema changes to Active Directory required
