RE: [K12OSN] Too upgrade to Fedora Core 2 thats question



I am also in the process of replacing the old NT 4.0 domain with a
Samba.  Is the Redhat subscription yearly?  WBEL looks interesting, but
I need to make a decision soon?  One thing on the Redhat Enterprise
Edition they do not advertise LDAP as service that runs on it.  Which I
know you should be able to install it with no problems, but if I am
going to pay Redhat I would like some of the configuration work done for
me.  Thanks John!

I'm having the same debate. There was a lot of discussion a while back
on the move to Fedora and I will need to read through the archives.

I am planning on moving our 2 K12LTSP servers over to Fedora this summer
but am holding back for a while in hopes of installing K12LTSP 4.1.0 we
start back on Aug 6 so it might end up being 4.0.1.

As to retiring our NT 4.0 pdc in favor of Linux SAMB/LDAP I'm leaning
toward WBEL or purchasing RHEL heck they practically give it away to
schools. I'm not quite up on the implications of Fedora vs. WBELL but
this is on my research/reading list for tonight.
