Hello Again All;
I am still without migrating from an NIS environment to AD/FDS for all of my
machines, Windows as well as Sparc/Solaris 8-10 and Linux machines.
Back in October I started a thread that seemed to have gone nowhere and
would like to restart this thread.
It is my understanding that I must use FDS to serve as the middleware for
auth and perms between my UNIX machines and my AD servers, I have four of
them. I merely wish to have my Solaris and Linux machines use the
credentials on the AD environment versus what I am doing now, YP/NIS.
Has someone done this sucessfully? If so, may I ask if you found a doc
anywhere describing this?

This is a pretty big topic.
Gary Tay has put together some docs that are a great starting point:
Sun's docs regarding Solaris clients will also be useful for you:
One other thing:

If you mean that you will be using AD as your directory server, you won't
necessarily need to run a separate directory server like FDS.
