Going from a common NFS/ residence to a complete LDAP remedy
I lately released concerning a loads Ubuntu (Karmic) desktop computers in a tiny workplace. Every little thing was going wonderful, yet storage space came to be a concern. I after that relocated/ residence to an NFS place which addressed the prompt trouble.
Months later on, I'm regretting this. The firm is exceptionally topsy-turvy with high turn over, individuals never ever remain at the very same workdesk for lengthy and also currently I have 12 equipments that any person requires to accessibility at any kind of offered time. This obtains insane with contrasting UID/GID's too.
I would certainly such as to simply make use of LDAP and also make the trouble vanish. The concern is, they intend to be self enough, so I require some (very easy) means for the workplace manager to take care of users. Ideally something GUI driven and also simple/intuitive to make use of.
What are my alternatives?
