The costs seem very painful....Ive not looked at them (Likewise, Quest, 
Centrify) in detail yet....and some of the blurb that nothing like AD exists in 
the Linux world is now nullified with freeIPA....

"Polished" bear in mind that this is gen 2.0 or really an advanced "PDC" in a 
way....the biggest thing for me so far is the ease of use, which with our 
limited capability staff/useradmins has to be a god send.

So IPA on RHEL6.2 beta...time to play!!!

I have ~50 servers and yes, we are using Centrify now - and yes, it is pain in 
the ass (need to take care of the licenses).
But I have found out recently that sssd can do much of the Centrify's duty 
(authorization & authentication) - well, it is not so polished, but it seems to 
work well.

you buy centrify/likewise or quest software or similar and thats very expensive 
and a pain in the ass.
