Steve Pitcher › Goodbye Active Directory?

December 29th, 2012
For me, just maybe.  I'm going to at least give this a solid look.

We have a loose migration plan for all of our x64-based Microsoft Windows servers to IBM Power Systems.  All except our Active Directory servers.  We use those for Group Policy, Domain authentication, Domino web authentication, DNS and a few other familiar functions.

As per ZDNet, the release of Samba 4 appears to be a viable alternative to Active Directory.  More to come once I dig a bit more information about it.  I wonder if I can run it on IBM i?   :)
