after listening to FOSS weekly program I started to consider the use of UCS at my office. We have a windows and LInux client environment at work. 90% of our client desktops run Ubuntu Linux. We use some kind of roaming profile with openldap (for user, identity management and authentication) and NFS for mounting remote home directory. We use pgina to authenticate windows users via ldap but the user home is local to each computer.
We are hoping to harmonise our setup to allow users to be able to login to both Windows and LInux and have access to the same directory i.e cross platform desktop roaming. Would it be possible to achieve this with UCS?
We use a dedicated NAS (synology) for NFS and it also has support for CIFS/SMB would it be possible to have that integrated with UCS too?
Lastly I would like to understand the nexus between Openldap, Samba4 and Kerberos. Its it possible to have one username and password for openldap, kerberos and samba4?
Is it possible to migrate users our current directory to UCS or can UCS work with an external ldap server
If there is a comprehensive documentation which enlighten on all these questions then I would appreciate if you could point me to them.
sorry for the long question
