Re: Using Centrify or Likewise for authenticating against AD



FWIW, I tried Likewise...my organization wound up just adding Kerberos to
AD, and using AD as a Kerberos authentication server.

The problem I had with Likewise was that any AD user could log into my
Linux and Unix servers with Likewise enabled...we didn't seem to be able
to restrict them.  Using AD auth via Kerberose meant that local
authorization was in play with remote authentication (if the account
doesn't exist on the box, they can not log in...period).
