I’ve just uploaded the first brick of the house to nethserver-testing. Some notes about how to install it on NethServer 7:
I’ve succeeded on connecting it with RSAT tools from a Win10 workstation.
Where do we go from here? There’s a lot of work to do! Some sparse thoughts:
- Any service relying on system accounts must be reconfigured. Whenever possible, any service must use
getentsystem calls to gather account informations and on PAM for user authentication. I want avoid direct connections to the AD LDAP. By configuring the services in this way, we can easily support the deployment of the DC node on remote machines and also on different systems (MS-Windows).
- I’d like to drop the current implementation of Accounts DB. I’d like an esmith::DB package capable of reading values directly from
getent()system calls and from DBus objects.
The first service on my list is the mail server.
