Samba on obsd

bonne
Hi. I am having a project on setting up Samba to work as a replacement for
MS AD.

I would prefer to do it on OpenBSD, but how is the implementation of Samba
on OpenBSD? Is it enhanced in a way that will cause any known problems that
would not be on say... CentOS?

Regards, Lars.

As a replacement for MS AD you have no chance with OpenBSD.Sadly.� --� Maksim

samba ad is not working on OpenBSD because ffs has no ea support.

centos is bad choise too, because of permanently outdated version of samba.

You should try arch linux or freebsd for this project, both of them has

nearly latest version of samba.

Depending on your requirements, e.g. Windows machined in your setup, you
can also try
https://www.freeipa.org
I would use Fedora, not CentOS.
It is an umbrella project for LDAP, Kerberos, DNS, NTP and some added
functionality on top you might or might not need/use.
It can also establish trust relationships with existing AD forests.
Worth checking out.
Regarding support for OpenBSD clients, I haven't tried, but you could hook
up direct LDAP access, for example.

It seems that Debian is also recommended as an AD replacement.

And in my experience with packaging tools internals, policies,
standards support, etc (which was not with anything related to AD),
far superior to other Linux distros.  Ask me off-list if you want
any details on that.
