With the introduction of Nethserver ‘Mayo’ 7 beta we also have Samba4. Besides filesharing, Samba is also managing network objects like workstations, servers groups and users. Samba 4 is (more or less) compatible with Active Directory.
In Active Directory a lot is managed through GPO’s (Group policy objects). Microsoft has a decent application for that in RSAT tools. However, as far as I know, there is no opensource alternative for that.
Does this mean we are still stuck with at least 1 Windows machine running RSAT? Or is it possible to run RSAT under wine?
Ok, there is sambatool, but to be honest, that has by far not the options RSAT has.
Maybe this can be seen as a feature request: Having a webgui for managing GPO’s
