Thanks, I'll take a look.

Thanks for the that link - the video was helpful.  Although I'm afraid that is
making me lean towards implementing the not recommended "split brain"
approach.  Although one thing that is not clear to me is weather doing this
consumes CALs for the linux machines since they authenticate against AD.

Currently we have two main office locations (DNS cora.nwra.com and nwra.com)
plus some remote users and a 389-ds LDAP server for the Linux boxes and an AD
domain (NWRA.LOCAL).  We are using the LDAP/AD password/user sync module to
sync users and passwords.  Essentially, all of our Linux users are Windows
users and vice versa, and we have well established UIDs on both sides.

We would like to move to using Kerberos on the Linux machines and to be able
to have as much SSO capability as possible.  Am I correct in assuming that
this either requires a single KDC or trusts between KDCs?  While trusts are
being promoted as the way to go for this, I'm afraid it will require a lot of
tweaking to our current setup.  Or perhaps not.  We currently maintain DNS
outside of both AD and would do the same IPA.  We're happy to apply custom
configurations via puppet, etc.
