First of all, many thanks indeed to the developers and community for making
some great strides in the open source IPA world !
I am planning for a Linux deployment with the following requirements.
-- About 50 Linux clients running Kubuntu (can change this to ubuntu if
-- Centralized authentication
-- Centralized storage with iSCSI for /home folder for each user by means of
a dedicated storage
-- NO Windows or other users
-- Admin should be able to create and modify the accounts of all the users
-- Admin should be able to set password policies
-- Allocate /home folder for each user from the storage through iSCSI
-- Server can be CentOS/RHEL (or even Fedora if absolutely required)
-- Any other administration of users if possible !
I was wondering whether FreeIPA makes sense to me in this scenario ? can it
satisfy all these or at least some of these ? if not, can anyone suggest me
some alternative solutions which are open source ? I am flexible on the
requirements and can make modifications if that is required.
I would really appreciate any feedback on this.
Thanks in advance and regards,
Yes Nidal, you will find that FreeIPA satisfies almost all of these
requirements. iSCSI managment is not a feature of FreeIPA.
If you are looking to begin now, I would recommend that you start with Fedora
as your base server distro.
IPA will be available for RHEL as a Feature preview in 6.1 with plans to be
fully supported and integrated by 6.2.
