RE: authentication question



I would suggest using NIS.  I currently have about 20 linux hosts that
users can use.  All users are authenticated via NIS.  Its pretty easy to
set up and run...

Subject: authentication question


I'm at a loss for how to do authentication well for a small group of 
linux machines.

We have several linux hosts, all of which run samba, and all of which 
should use a single password per user, or at least, a single password 
change program which changes all passwords.  Samba really wants to use a

domain server or to keep it's own password database separate from the 
unix passwords.

Any suggestions on how to get these all authenticated off the same
database?

The only thing I can see to do is to turn one into a domain controller 
and have everything else authenticate off that.  Are there any other 
alternatives?
