Re: Active Directory module?



Microsoft realized that many sites would have a heterogeneous mix of Windows and
Unix servers. The Services For Unix package contains a feature called NIS which
includes the LDAP Posix schema. This schema defines interoperability parameters
for Windows and Unix, such as UID, GID, home directory, default shell etc.
Active Directory will use the Posix schema if installed. Thus you get UIDs and
GIDs that cause no conflicts between Windows and Unix, Linux, and other flavors.

        I set about one day to make a list of the innovations
        that are attributable to Microsoft. Once I realized
        that Ctrl-Alt-Del was handled in the BIOS, it turned
        out that there aren't any.
