Hi All,

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.
