Building Interoperable and Flexible Infrastructure with Windows, Solaris, and Linux
The Apache Directory Server facilitates interoperability by supporting standard protocols such as LDAP and Kerberos. This is both a tutorial and a reference for deploying heterogeneous infrastructure. This Interoperablity Tutorial is organized into trails - groups of lessons on a particular subject. While much proprietary and open-source software will be covered, a special emphasis will be placed on using Apache Directory as a "realm controller" to provide Kerberos-based authentication across Windows, Linux, and Solaris, including Linux Xen hosts and Sun GridEngine nodes.
A list of trails and the lessons within them.
Scan the master table of contents to quickly move to a particular topic, or to get an overview of every trail.
Our goal is to keep this tutorial as up-to-date as possible with the latest releases of open-source and proprietary software. If you find an error or some details lacking in the tutorial, please mail us the relevant information on the Apache Directory developer's mailing list, firstname.lastname@example.org. We will try to incorporate fixes to the errors in the next release of the tutorial.
