Easy Active Directory integration with Likewise Open
Likewise Open provides smooth integration with Active Directory environments. We show you how to install and configure the admin-friendly authentication system.
The Likewise Open authentication system  integrates Linux clients with the Active Directory environment. Of course, you can also configure Active Directory through Samba and its supporting cast of characters , but the Likewise solution offers several benefits for easier configuration and administration.
The free, GPL'd version of Likewise supports authentication against Active Directories, the authorization of kerberized services, and even single sign-on. This might sound a lot like Samba, which does the same things; in fact, the project manager of Likewise, Gerald Carter, is a long-term member of the Samba core developer team. Likewise Open builds on the work by Samba, although it adds many of its own features.
Likewise packages are available for Red Hat, Novell, and Canonical distributions, a couple of commercial Unix systems, and Mac OS X.
