I want to know if FreeBSD can operate as a Primary Domain Controller in a Network, because where I live everybody has microsoft computers so I want to use FreeBSD as server instead Windows NT o 2000.
Hmm - I don't know if Samba can do what I *think* he means. Allow me to expand. I'm thinking he means as in Active Directory. A Domain.
It's no use guessing at what he means. What he *says* is a PDC in place of a NT server. Samba can do that. Active Directory is just that, a directory service, not a domain controller. A Samba PDC can't host Active Directory, but neither can NT.
I first did a fast search of the ports - See below:
racerx# make search key="active dir" | more Port: adtool-1.2 Path: /usr/ports/sysutils/adtool Info: Active Directory administration tool Maint: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Index: sysutils B-deps: expat-1.95.6_1 gettext-0.12.1 gmake-3.80_1 libiconv-1.9.1_3 openldap-cli ent-2.1.26 R-deps: openldap-client-2.1.26
I believe hat's a tool to permit access (via LDAP) to an Active Directory registry existing on a W2K/XP machine.
