Rationale and Case Study
Speaking As A Private Individual
Wondering how to build a SuSE Linux Enterprise Server to operate properly as a Domain Controller (DC) in current network environments? Don Vosburg, SUSE System Engineer, and Jeff Polomsky, SUSE Territory Sales Manager, will be on hand to discuss Samba, OpenLDAP, Kerberos, as well as any other topics that you would like to discuss.
SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) - the commercial version of SuSE that comes with support.
Domain Controller (DC) - that fancy service that manages users and passwords for Microsoft Windows networks (and other stuff). It makes newer Microsoft Windows systems very happy, and provides a single place to manage users across the network. (Sales pitch)
There will be to be a "How It Can Be Used" lunch time presentation at the STL Novell Users Group.
The Saint Louis MO, STL Linux Users Group meets monthly to talk about Linux. This GNU/Linux Users Group usually holds its meetings on the third Thursday of every month. Meetings are free and open to everyone.
Basics: The regular ITE meeting room is open and available from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM. At 6:45 PM we start with introductions, announcements, current events of interest, and a general CALL FOR HELP segment. Then we will go into the presentation of our main topic sometime around 7:00 PM.
