RE: [edlug] AD4Unix

Thanks Jon

I did flag the schema to allow updates. In fact I have resinstalled it twice
now. We are running W2K SP3 on a test server where I am trying it. I will
look into Microsoft Services For UNIX more fully. The reason I chose AD4UNIX
was the amount of people who seem to have used it to extend thier schema and
had no problems with it.

I used to use it, but it doesn't seem to work very well with later service
packs; on Win2K Server SP4 it installs OK but the UNIX tab locks up. I gave
up and used the official Microsoft Services For UNIX (MSSFU v2 but v3 is
nearly shipping), and that worked fine for me (single sign-on, PAM-LDAP and
LIBNSS-LDAP on Linux). 

I assume you did the bit about allowing schema updates on the DC? (and you
know about replication fun and games with multiple DCs).
