Windows clients generally require a lot more from the domain controller than IPA can provide. And most of the operations are done over the custom MSFT protocols. There might be a way to make the Windows workstation to work with IPA to some extent. My dream is to allow the following use case: Win7 is joined into and AD domain using AD native tools and then via a credential provider is configured to authenticate against IPA. If there is a trust between AD and IPA there should (hopefully) be a way to place the TGT that is acquired by user auth against IPA into some place where MSFT kerberos library would think that this is a TGT for a user who came from a different forest and would use cross realm exchange is user tries to access resources in the AD domain behind the scenes. If that made possible it would really create a set of interesting opportunities as IPA some time in the future would natively support 2FA over Kerberos for login. > > rob > > _______________________________________________ > Freeipa-users mailing list > Freeipafirstname.lastname@example.org > https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users -- Thank you, Dmitri Pal Sr. Engineering Manager IPA project, Red Hat Inc. ------------------------------- Looking to carve out IT costs? www.redhat.com/carveoutcosts/ _______________________________________________ Freeipa-users mailing list Freeipaemail@example.com https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users
