  • Demonstrate step-by-step how to configure several distros of Linux to use AD, including CentOS (think RedHat) and Mint (based on Debian and Ubuntu)
  • Look at tools like Winbind and PowerBroker Identity Services which provide AD integration for Linux
  • Dive into the details of how Linux’s native support for AD compares to a Windows system that is a member of an AD domain. There are some big differences. One of the biggest of course is that, on Windows, with AD membership comes configuration management via Group Policy. And then there's Windows built-in capability to find the nearest domain controller and automatically find another DC if the preferred one goes down. I'll show you what works and what doesn't in Linux's native support for AD.
  • Show you how to take that to the next level and make a Linux (or even Mac) system a full-fledged member of Active Directory – comparable to a Windows system – using AD bridge technology from our sponsor, BeyondTrust.
