Re: central sign-on for Red Hat?



NIS+ is a Sun product, that Sun does not recommend any more. I've used it for a number of years on Solaris. It was a very secure system which scaled up to very large distributed networks well. NIS+ on Linux only supports the client side, and I don't think anyone actively supports the code any more. The web page is http://www.linux-nis.org/nisplus/.

I would say use NIS for a relatively small network behind a good firewall. For anything else go with LDAP.

Hi All
Is there a way to have all of my users (25 red hat boxes on RHES 4.0), to have their logon accounts and permission managed and configured from one server (like Active Directory does)? Would OpenLDAP do the trick? Or is there another way? As always, thank you for your help! Anne

There is the RedHat Directory Server if you need the support or you could
use the Fedora Directory Server if you can manage it on your own or with
community support from the mailing lists.
