It will allow your unix/linux machines to play nicely in the Active
Directory Kerberos environment.

First of all, thank you very much for your help wit my question about
GPOs and so on... your answers helped me a lot...

Now I have the following question: I have found that my organization
has several kind of OS installed on computers... most of them are
W2K/W2K3 integrated within a W2K domain...

Since admins have to remember lots of accounts/passwords for the W2K*
servers, and the others with Linux, HP-UX, Solaris, etc... I have
found that most of the passwords are too simple, and repeated all over
the non-W2K* systems...

I have tried with a password manager, but some times we lost a
valuable time searching for the strong password for one system at the
password manager software...

Is there anyway to integrate the OS accounts of UNIX-like sysetms with an AD?

Best regards
