Been looking for a replacement for NIS. Have a small network of two servers, half a dozen virtual machines, firewall (opnsense), VPN and a truenas NAS. We may want to also provide authentication to some other services but that’s a future project. I like to have one source authentication credentials and it looks like UCS could help with that.
I started to experiment with UCS but I need a better understanding of what services I should use from UCS. For example I prefer to keep dns and dhcp on the firewall. what impact would hat have on UCS.
on the question of pricing? it looks like the base cost is 382$ plus 19$/user to give me everything I need for to authenticate users on the VPN, NAS and systems?
Thanks, I’m sure I’ll have more questions as I learn more!
